Identifying and prioritizing
modes of heat transfer
It’s important to identify and prioritize the modes of heat transfer at each location in the system. Such as appreciating that radiation, driven by T4, often dominates heat transfer from 300 K surfaces, thereby relegating conduction to a minor concern.
Selecting the correct
Materials have unique characteristics, and consequently offer distinct advantages and usefulness in different settings and situations.
Designing the appropriate
Because employing dissimilar materials can yield a superb design, and because of extreme swings in temperatures, reliable joining methodologies are crucial.
refinement and optimization
To meet design specifications, including performance, reliability, and costing targets, trade-offs must be made. Just like choosing gold for all conductors would be overkill and impractical, likewise, many other components require judicious decision-making, thereby striking a balance between theoretical ideals and real-world pragmatism.
Real design elegance manifests in the manner in which all aspects of the system are integrated into a harmonious system.
