Conduction is one of the most important modes of heat transfer, an importance well-established by its practical significance in many energy engineering problems.

Energy Transfers by Conduction examines in detail the conduction of heat; it highlights the equations that govern this phenomenon and applies them to a series of practical situations. Particular attention is paid to calculation methods used in studies aiming at a sustainable use of energy. It also presents calculations for the implementation of thermal building regulations, which involves determining global thermal wall resistances of heated or air-conditioned buildings.

A series of exercises at the end of the book allows the reader to implement the concepts presented. These exercises correspond to real situations commonly encountered in industrial practice or in everyday life.


1. Fundamental Equations of Conduction.
2. Conduction in Steady State and Applications.
3. Conduction Applications in Thermal Insulation.
4. Conduction Applications in the Reduction of Heat Losses in Construction.
5. Conduction with Energy Generation.
6. Conduction in Transient State.
7. Exercises and Solutions.
