Heat Transfer from Combustion Chamber Walls


Cooling the walls of a combustion chamber containing gases at high temperatures, i.e., 1000°C, results in parallel modes of heat transfer, convection and radiation. This problem can be approached by assuming one-dimensional steady-state heat transfer in rectangular coordinates and with constant thermophysical properties.

Convection heat transfer per unit area, from hot gases to the hot side of a wall that separates the cold medium and the hot gases, can be written as:


Radiation heat transfer per unit area from hot gases which are assumed to behave as gray bodies to the hot side of a wall can be written as:
