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.
The block has the following ports:
