Gas conduction


To calculate the thermal conduction between two bodies, separated by a gap filled with gas
Follow the steps, and if you are
ready press the button calculate and evaluate the results in the graph.



Step 1 Input system size

T1 [K] Upper wall temperature

T2 [K] Lower wall temperature

a [m] Distance between the walls

P [Pa] Gas pressure

Step 2 Select Gas properties

Select Gas

Properties of Carbon dioxide
Mm 0.04401 [kg] Molar mass
gamma1.304 specific heat capacity ratio
alpha0.92 thermal accommodation factor (take 0.5 as a guess - higher for heavier molecules, and lower for lighter)
Tmin185[K]Minimum temperature for this gas.
Tmax1670[K]Maximum temperature for this gas.
