This formula uses 4 Variables
Variables Used
Heat Flux - (Measured in Watt per Square Meter) - Heat Flux is the heat transfer rate per unit area normal to the direction of heat flow. It is denoted by the letter "q".
Thermal Conductivity of Fin - (Measured in Watt per Meter per K) - Thermal Conductivity of Fin is rate of heat passes through Fin, expressed as amount of heat flows per unit time through a unit area with a temperature gradient of one degree per unit distance.
Temperature of Conductor - (Measured in Kelvin) - Temperature of Conductor is the degree or intensity of heat present in a heat conductor.
Length of Conductor - (Measured in Meter) - Length of Conductor is the measure of length of wire.

< 6 Basics of HMT Calculators

Thermal resistance for conduction through 2 resistances in parallel
Thermal Resistance = (Length)/((Thermal Conductivity 1*Point 1 Cross-Sectional Area)+(Thermal Conductivity 2*Point 2 Cross-Sectional Area))
Total Thermal Resistance for Conduction through Two Resistances in Parallel
Thermal Resistance in Parallel = (Thermal Resistance 1*Thermal Resistance 2)/(Thermal Resistance 1+Thermal Resistance 2)
Total Thermal Resistance for Conduction through Three Resistances in Series
Thermal Resistance in Series = Thermal Resistance 1+Thermal Resistance 2+Thermal resistance 3

What is heat flux?

Heat flux or thermal flux, sometimes also referred to as heat flux density, heat-flow density or heat flow rate intensity is a flow of energy per unit of area per unit of time. In SI its units are watts per square metre (W/m2). It has both a direction and a magnitude, and so it is a vector quantity.

How to Calculate Heat Flux?

Heat Flux calculator uses Heat Flux = Thermal Conductivity of Fin*Temperature of Conductor/Length of Conductor to calculate the Heat Flux, Heat flux or thermal flux, sometimes also referred to as heat flux density, heat-flow density or heat flow rate intensity is a flow of energy per unit of area per unit of time. Heat Flux is denoted by q symbol.
