Heat Transfer

  • Günter BrennEmail author
Part of the Mathematical Engineering book series (MATHENGIN)


This chapter discusses problems of thermal energy transport which may be solved analytically. The processes may be conductive in nature, involving the diffusion equation as the underlying differential equation for the spatiotemporal evolution of temperature. As far as convective processes are concerned, the intention to have analytical descriptions clearly puts the restriction to laminar flow in simple geometries.
