Heat Transfer Coefficient

Heat transfer coefficient (film coefficient or film effectiveness) is the convective heat transfer between a solid surface and the fluid around it.

Heat Transfer Coefficient formula

\(h = \frac { Q }  { \Delta T }   \)


\(h\) = heat transfer coefficient

\(Q\) = amount of heat transfer

\(\Delta T\) = temperature differential
