n= direction of the unit normal to the boundary. nx, ny = direction cosines of the unit normal to the boundary. qn = specified heat flow in the n-direction on the boundary.

Convection Boundary Conditions

where,

h = convection heat transfer coefficients Tf = Temperature of the surrounding fluid h depends upon many factors: velocity of fluid, viscosity of fluid, density of fluid, and other properties of fluid.

Radiation Boundary Condition:


Heat radiated is proportional to the difference in the fourth power of temperature between the radiating bodies.
k T 4 4 = BC ( Tr T ) n

where,

BC is the proportionality constant. Tr is the temperature of the other radiating body. Temperatures Tr and T are in absolute degrees i.e., oK.

For two infinite parallel black bodies (planes) it is called the Boltzmann
constant. For regular bodies BC depends upon the emissivity of the bodies, the geometry and other factors. Radiation boundary conditions lead to non-linear thermal problem. A general approach is:
k T 2 2 = BC ( Tr + T ) ( Tr + T ) ( Tr T ) = hr ( Tr T ) n

In the iteration process, at each step treat the radiation boundary condition like a convection term with coefficient dependent upon the temperature at a particular step.
