What is heat transfer efficiency?

The Heat transfer efficiency, α formula is defined as the ratio of actual heat gained by joint to the heat generated at electrode. The actual heat generated at the tip of the electrode and ideally should be available for melting the joint. However, the actual heat utilized by the joint depends upon how this heat is transferred from the tip of the electrode to the joint. Hence a factor of heat transfer efficiency, is to be defined to take into account of any losses in between such that the net heat available at the weld joint.

How to Calculate Heat transfer efficiency, α?

Heat transfer efficiency, α calculator uses Heat transfer efficiency=Net heat supplied/Heat Generated to calculate the Heat transfer efficiency, The Heat transfer efficiency, α formula is defined as the ratio of actual heat gained by joint to the heat generated at electrode. Heat transfer efficiency and is denoted by α symbol.

How to calculate Heat transfer efficiency, α using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Heat transfer efficiency, α, enter Net heat supplied (hNet) and Heat Generated (H) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Heat transfer efficiency, α calculation can be explained with given input values -> 208.3333 = 10000/48.

FAQ

What is Heat transfer efficiency, α?
The Heat transfer efficiency, α formula is defined as the ratio of actual heat gained by joint to the heat generated at electrode and is represented as α=hNet/H or Heat transfer efficiency=Net heat supplied/Heat Generated. Net heat supplied is the final and total amount of heat transfer in a particular process and Heat Generated is the amount of heat energy produced or transfered from one form to another form .
How to calculate Heat transfer efficiency, α?
The Heat transfer efficiency, α formula is defined as the ratio of actual heat gained by joint to the heat generated at electrode is calculated using Heat transfer efficiency=Net heat supplied/Heat Generated. To calculate Heat transfer efficiency, α, you need Net heat supplied (hNet) and Heat Generated (H). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for Net heat supplied and Heat Generated and hit the calculate button. You can also select the units (if any) for Input(s) and the Output as well.
