How to Calculate Time Constant in unsteady state heat transfer?
Time Constant in unsteady state heat transfer calculator uses tau_mi = (Density*Specific Heat Capacity*Volume)/(Convection heat transfer coefficient*Surface Area) to calculate the Time Constant, Time Constant in unsteady state heat transfer formula gives the value of time constant which is the time to reach the temperature gradient equals 63.21 % of the initial temperature gradient. Time Constant is denoted by τ symbol.
