BIOT NUMBER

BIOT NUMBER

Biot number is proportional to { (thermal internal resistance) / (surface film resistance) } and is used in heat transfer in general and unsteady state calculations in particular. It is normally defined in the following form :

 

BIOT NUMBER

 

Where:

delta-x

=

Mid-plane distance

h_T

=

Heat transfer coefficient

k

=

Thermal Conductivity
