Heat transfer by conduction
The Conductive Heat Transfer block represents a heat transfer by conduction between two layers of the same material. The transfer is governed by the Fourier law and is described with the following equation:
|k||Material thermal conductivity|
|A||Area normal to the heat flow direction|
|D||Distance between layers|
|TA,TB||Temperatures of the layers|
Connections A and B are thermal conserving ports associated with material layers. The block positive direction is from port A to port B. This means that the heat flow is positive if it flows from A to B.
Area of heat transfer, normal to the heat flow direction. The default value is 0.0001 m^2.
Thickness between layers. The default value is 0.1 m.
Thermal conductivity of the material. The default value is 401 W/m/K.
Use the Variables tab to set the priority and initial target values for the block variables prior to simulation. For more information, see Set Priority and Initial Target for Block Variables.
The block has the following ports:
