It is used in calculating the heat transfer, typically by convection or phase transition between a fluid and a solid. The heat transfer coefficient has SI units in watts per squared meter kelvin: W/(m 2 K). Heat transfer coefficient is the inverse of thermal insulance. This is used for building materials (R-value) and for clothing insulation.

This calculator can be use to calculate the overall heat transfer coefficient and the heat transfer through a multi-layered wall.

View MoreThe overall heat transfer coefficient is a measure of the overall ability of a series of conductive and convective barriers to transfer heat. It is commonly applied to the calculation of heat transfer in heat exchangers , but can be applied equally well to other problems.

View MoreThe larger the coefficient, the easier heat is transferred from its source to the product being heated. In a heat exchanger, the relationship between the overall heat transfer coefficient (U) and the heat transfer rate (Q) can be demonstrated by the following equation: where

View MoreThe thermal resistance of heat-transfer in boiling of the heat-transfer medium 1/h 2 can be ignored. Therefore, in the calculation of the overall heat-transfer coefficient U , the quantity h 2 should be determined in the case of monophase flow in tubes.

View MoreOverall heat transfer coefficients are dependant on many parameters such as the nature of the fluid, fluid velocities, type of heat exchanger, temperatures and fouling. Despite all these determining parameters, typical overall heat transfer coefficients are available for common applications and fluids.

View MoreBeing able to efficiently add or remove heat is the primary function of a thermal fluid. The heat transfer coefficient is the calculated amount of heat that passes between the thermal fluid to or from any given surface it comes in contact with by way of convection – with the driving force behind the transfer of heat being the temperature differential between the two.

View MoreUnder convective heat transfer in a fluid with varying properties and in boiling, heat transfer coefficient may substantially depend on and ΔT . In these cases an increase of heat flux may give rise to hazardous phenomena such as burnout (transition heat flux) and deterioration of turbulent heat transfer in tubes.

View MoreFouling in heat exchangers is a major factor which reduces performance of heat exchangers in due course by reducing the overall heat transfer coefficient. Fouling is the modification of surface of plates/tubes over time due to several factors. For example, corrosion, magnesium/calcium deposits or biological factors such as algae settlements.

View MoreThe overall heat transfer coefficient is related to the total thermal resistance and depends on the geometry of the problem. For example, heat transfer in a steam generator involves convection from the bulk of the reactor coolant to the steam generator inner tube surface, conduction through the tube wall, and convection (boiling) from the outer tube surface to the secondary side fluid.
