- Heat Transfer

WithStephen B. Londerville, Charles E. Baukal, Jr., and Jay Karan

Heat transfer is one of the fundamental purposes of combustion in all industrial applications. The objective of many industrial combustion applications is to transfer energy, in the form of heat, to some type of load for thermal processing of that load.1 An understanding of heat transfer and thermodynamics is essential to the successful design and operation of combustion equipment. The objective of this chapter is to review helpful concepts of thermodynamics and heat transfer, focusing on those topics as applied to combustion, particularly in industrial applications.
