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

$$h = \frac { Q } { \Delta T }$$

Where:

$$h$$ = heat transfer coefficient

$$Q$$ = amount of heat transfer

$$\Delta T$$ = temperature differential
