Radiation and convection

The basis for this example is a simple roof structure consisting of a wooden panel, insulation and an aluminium outer layer. The internal temperature on the wood surface is kept constant. The outside ambient temperature is also constant but lower than the inside temperature. Five different roof sections are used to demonstrate different definitions for convection and radiation boundary conditions on the surface of the aluminium layer. A transient thermal calculation is carried out.
