ARCH 140 Architecture 140 Energy and Environmental Management College of Environmental Design UC Berkeley READING 9 HEAT TRANSFER MECHANISMS Thermodynamics Thermodynamics describes heat movement There is a certain order to the movement of heat energy It flows in a speci c manner it can be manipulated through the use of materials it can be stored borrowed bought and given away To design with it as opposed to against it one needs to know its laws First Law of Thermodynamics The rst and second laws of thermodynamics are basic to any discussion of energy The rst law is quotEnergy can neither be created nor destroyedquot Energy can be transformed from one form such as light into equivalent quantities of another form such as heat but the total amount of energy in any transaction and in the universe remains constant Energy can be converted absorbed stored and distributed Sunlight streaming through a window is absorbed by furniture floor and walls as heat Some is not absorbed it is reflected as light back into the space Electrical energy sent to a light bulb is converted into light and heat energy illuminating and heating the space Ultimately heat or light released or collected in a building either will be converted into work done eg maintenance of satisfactory environmental conditions or will be lost through the building skin Second Law of Thermodynamics The second law of thermodynamics states that when free interchange of heat takes place it is always the hotter of the two bodies that loses energy and the colder that gains energy see Figure 2112 A more general statement of this principle is that energy cannot spontaneously transform from a lower to a higher state Work can only be done in passing from a higher energy state such as light to a lower energy state such as heat For energy to ow in the opposite direction it must be forced additional energy must be applied and thus work must be done on the system The second law ofthermodynamics implies that all systems tend to achieve equilibrium Thus to establish a division between hot and cold in a substance that has reached a uniform temperature requires the use of either a heater to warm up part of the substance or a cooling device to cool down part of it Either action requires usage of additional energy Page 1 of Reading No 9 ARCH 140 Heating a building is similar Left alone the cold air outside and the warm air inside will reach a state of equilibrium with the warm molecules sharing their heat with the cold ones This will happen even with a completely airtight building because the warm air will heat the inside of the envelope and the cold air will cool the outside of the envelope until both bodies of air and the envelope are at the same temperature To keep the inside air warm then requires an addition of energy heat Cooling a building is basically similar except that energy is required to extract unwanted heat from the building Heat Transfer Heat flows or travels in different manners conduction convection and radiation Heat can also be absorbed or released in phase changes These types of heat transfer occur naturally outside the building at the skin of the building and within the building itself The manipulation of these forces enables the design professional to provide suitable interior conditions without requiring the unnecessary expenditure of energy resources an understanding of the laws of thermodynamics will help the designer to work in conjunction with these laws creating and manipulating desired thermal transfers throughout a building Conduction Conduction is the heat flow between adjacent molecules whether the molecules are within a single substance or in two separate bodies in direct contact such as air molecules in contact with a warm substance conduction occurs when the warmer molecules which are vibrating faster than the colder molecules transfer part of their energy to the colder molecules Convection Convection occurs when a fluid such as a gas or liquid is involved The uid is heated heat energy is added to the uid and then the fluid containing this heat moves from one place to another This movement can be forced mechanically such as by using a fan to move warm air from a furnace to room or more quotnaturallyquot without mechanical assistance as when smoke rises up a chimney or when warm air in a room rises to the ceiling allowing cool airto fall to the oor Page 2 of Reading No 9 ARCH 140 Radiation Radiation is the transport of energy in the form of electromagnetic waves Sunlight for instance is one form of electromagnetic waves As sunlight passes through the air and a window pane to reach the interior ofa room very little of its energy is absorbed When the light energy hits objects in the room some of it is absorbed as heat which is inferred energy The portion of light energy that is not immediately absorbed when it hits objects in the room is re ected Eventually this light energy is fully quotusedquot or absorbed either by objects in the room in the form of heat or by our eyes Materials absorb reflect and transmit radiation to varying degrees For the same transmission level high absorption means lower re ectance and vice versa Polished aluminum is a good re ector of both light and heat radiation asphalt paving is not Phase Changes Phase changes involve the relatively large amounts of energy needed to change the phase of substance ie from solid to liquid and liquid to gas The change of phase that occurs when water evaporates into water vapor for example requires almost a thousand times as much energy as it takes to raise water temperature one degree F This is the basis of evaporative cooling which adds water to warm air this process of evaporating water into air cools the air by the removing of heat required for evaporation HEAT TRANSFER THROUGH WALLS The amount of heat flowing from the interior to the exterior of a building envelope for a given temperature difference AT inout can be quanti ed in terms ofthe conductances of the materials making up the wall and the wall and the conductance of the wall39s surface air films The conductance of a single material measures the rate of heat ow per unit time through a given thickness ofthat substance The units of conductance are Btusqft F hr Page 3 of Reading No 9 ARCH 140 The conductance of a material is determined by a more basic property its conductivity which is the time rate of heat flow through a M thickness ofthat material The units of conductivity are Btu sqft F hr foot or inch thickness It can be seen that c kd where d thickness ofthe material EXAMPLE The conductivity of softwood such as pine is k 08 Btusqft F hrin while the conductance of a piece of plywood 34 inches thick made from a softwood is C 106 Btusqft F hr The lm or surface conductance is a measure of the time rate of heat ow across a surface as a function of the temperature difference between the building surface and the surrounding air It is an expression for the heat transferred from or to the surface by radiation and convection alone There are two types of lm conductances an inside and an outside This is because there is usually more heat transferred outside the surface ofa building due to wind Film conductance values are symbolized by hi inside air lm conductance h0 outside air lm conductance The convective heat transfer coef cient covers both convective and conductive heat transfer This is because when heat crosses a surface to a gas or liquid like air or water the conducted heat induces buoyancy differences in the fluid that then cause convective heat transfer by uid motion It is impossible to say where one process lets off and the other takes up so the two together are combined in the convective heat transfer coefficient HEAT TRANSFER IN SERIES In reality building surfaces are not composed ofa single material but of an assemblage of several materials each with its own conductivity Heat passing through assemblages is called heat transfer in series which is the conductive transfer from one material in the Page 4 of Reading No 9 assembly to another Therefore in order to find the combined conductive capacity of a building surface the total resistance to heat transfer must be determined The resistance or Rvalue ofa substance is the reciprocal of its conductance Rlor c gorl k h The units are sqft F hrBtu The overall resistance ofa construction assembly is equal to the sum ofthe resistances of each material component RtotalRl R2 39 R3 39 R4llll hi C1 02 he where l and 1 are

for still air and R0 1ho two values here 017 hr ft2 F Btu for the 15 mph wind assumed typical for winter and 025 hr ft2 F Btu forthe 75 mph wind assumed typical for summer You should memorize these

determine the Uvalue the overall coefficient of heat transmission which quantifies the rate of heat ow through the various materials ofa wall assembly Ul Rtotal The units of U are Btusqft F hr Notice that the surface or film coefficients hi and ho are included in the Uvalue Although all materials have a characteristic Uvalue they cannot be added together to arrive at the overall conductance value for an entire wall assembly Therefore the R values must be summed and then inverted Now we can calculate the total heat transfer per hour through a surface using the calculated Uvalue in the following

same temperature drop the total interiorexterior temperature AT To get the total heat loss for a wall made up of several constructions in parallel you simply add up all the heat losses through the different constructions Total heat loss UXAXAT UXAXAT U XAXAT for walls windows doors etc Page 6 of Reading No 9 ARCH 140 If you factor out the AT which is the same in each case you get the familiar equation Total heat loss 2 U x A x AT where Z is the sum ofall the U x A39s This equation is used for roofs as well as walls in fact all building surfaces that divide the interior from the exterior air If you add up all the U x A39s for a whole building and divide by the total surface area of the building you will have an average Uvalue for the whole building This is termed the quoteffective
