Heat Transfer Coefficient

The heat transfer coefficient, film coefficient or film effectiveness is the proportionality constant between the heat flux and the thermodynamic driving force for the flow of heat (i.e., the temperature difference, ?T). It is used in calculating the heat transfer, typically by convection or phase transition between a fluid and a solid. The heat transfer coefficient has SI units in watts per squared meter kelvin: W/(m²K). The heat transfer coefficient is the reciprocal of thermal insulance. This Heat Transfer Coefficient converter allows you to convert Btu (IT)/hour-sq. foot.°F (Btu(IT)/(h·ft²·°F)), Btu (IT)/second-sq. foot.°F (Btu(IT)/(s·ft²·°F)), Btu (th)/hour-sq. foot.°F (Btu(th)/(h·ft²·°F)), Btu (th)/second-sq. foot.°F (Btu(th)/(s·ft²·°F)), calorie (IT)/second-sq. centimeter-C, CHU/hour-sq. foot.°C (CHU/(h·ft²·°C)), joule/second-sq. meter-K (J/(s·m²·K)), kilocalorie (IT)/hour-sq. foot.°C (kcal/(h·ft²·°C)), kilocalorie (IT)/hour-sq. meter.°C (kcal/(h·m²·°C)), watt/sq. meter.°C (W/(m²·°C)), watt/sq. meter-K, among other units related to Heat Transfer Coefficient.
