Path 1 – Types of Heat Transfer
As I realize we are going into a holiday week and there may be a lag in the focus on discussion boards I figured I’d make sure we all moved into this next topic by starting a thread here.
As you all should be aware (and is covered in the text) there are 3 forms of heat transfer – conduction, convection (also described in the text as infiltration), and radiation.
I highly suggest that you be familiar with all three of these and the calculations for quantifying each, (though I can’t think of many situations where I’ve been asked to compute radiative heat transfer, and I wouldn’t consider memorizing that one if I were you).
You will see that for conductive heat transfer  (Formula 6-3) there are multiple ways of expressing the thermal conductance or resistance of a material.  It is important that we all be familiar with each of those and how they relate (mathematically to one another).
It is also important to understand that Q in these computations is in BTUh (or BTU per hour), and that to make this more than a scientific exercise one needs to add the time value to such and be able to present the effects of heat loss (or savings) changes over a time period (most often an annual basis).
Based upon the level (and accuracy) of discussion I may add another HW around this.  (Note general questions, on things you might not understand, can and should certainly be part of this thread, as appropriate.)
