Calculate the net rate of energy exchange by radiation between these two gray surfaces. 27 Fundamentals of Energy Conversion, Heat Transfer, and Fluid Mechanics Solution 1. 5825 2. 5 HEAT EXCHANGERS A heat exchanger is a device used to transfer heat from a hot fluid to a cold fluid. There are three types of heat exchangers: direct contact, recuperator, and regenerator heat exchangers [6,8]. Most of the heat exchangers used in energy systems are of the recuperator type with the heat transfer between the fluids across a separating wall.

Conduction is the heat transfer by molecules and atoms of solid materials and fluids. Convection is the heat transfer between a solid body and fluid such as air, water, steam, and oil. Heat transfer by radiation involves the exchange of the electromagnetic radiation between solid bodies. Contrary to the short wavelength solar radiation, the thermal radiation is the long wavelength infra-red radiation. 30) where k is the thermal conductivity of the solid material or the fluid in W/(mK). Metals have high k-values, while building materials have low, and thermal insulation the lowest k-values.
