Heat Penetration

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Thermodynamics

Heat penetration is the depth at which heat from any heat source dissipates into a source.    

 

Heat penetration Formula

\(\large{ d = k \; \sqrt{ a \; t }  }\)   

Where:

\(\large{ d }\) = penetration depth

\(\large{ k }\) = thermal conductivity

\(\large{ \alpha }\) (Greek symbol alpha) = thermal diffusivity

\(\large{ t }\) = time
