The effect of surface roughness and waviness upon the overall thermal contact resistance
(Cambridge, Mass. : M.I.T. Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, , 1966)
A thermal contact conductance equation was developed which considers both the effect of surface roughness and waviness. It was shown that the overall thermal contact conductance is determined by the roughness at large ...
Thermal contact resistance in a non-ideal joint
(Cambridge, Mass. : M.I.T. Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, , 1971)
The contact conductance at an interface can be determined by knowing the material and surface properties and the interfacial pressure distribution. This pressure distribution can be influenced strongly by the roughness of ...
Tables for solution of the heat-conduction equation with a time-dependent heating rate
(Cambridge, Mass. : M.I.T. Heat Transfer Laboratory, , 1962)
Tables are presented for the solution of the transient onedimensional heat flow in a solid body of constant material properties with the heating rate at one boundary dependent on time. These tables allow convenient and ...
Thermal contact conductance in a vacuum
(Cambridge, Mass. : M.I.T. Engineering Projects Laboratory, , 1965)
The object of this work is to develop analytically equations by which one could predict the thermal contact conductance between contiguous surfaces operating in a vacuum environment. In this work the solution to the problem ...
