Heat Transfer - Mechanisms

Mechanisms

The fundamental modes of heat transfer are:

Conduction or diffusion
The transfer of energy between objects that are in physical contact
Convection
The transfer of energy between an object and its environment, due to fluid motion
Radiation
The transfer of energy to or from a body by means of the emission or absorption of electromagnetic radiation
Advection
The transfer of energy from one location to another as a side effect of physically moving an object containing that energy
