Description

Estimates the area specific heat transfer by conduction (W/m2). Positive

Usage

1
qcond(Ts = 30, Tc = 20, ktiss = 0.502, x = 1)

Arguments

Ts

Surface temperature (degrees Celsius). Default value is 30.

Tc

Contact temperature (degrees Celsius), usually ground temperature. Default value is 20.

ktiss

Thermal conductivity of tissue (W/m/oC).

x

Distance over which heat is conducted. Default value is 1 m (unrealistic, but easier for converting)

Details

Usually conductive heat transfer is ignored given little surface area will be in contact with the ground, but this is included for functionality.

## The function is currently defined as
function (Ts = 30, Tc = 20, ktiss = 0.502, x = 1) 
{
    qcond <- ktiss * (Tc - Ts)/x
    qcond
  }

Example output

function (Ts = 30, Tc = 20, ktiss = 0.502, x = 1) 
{
    qcond <- ktiss * (Tc - Ts)/x
    qcond
}
