Abstract

An exact solution of heat conduction from two spheres is obtained using the bispherical coordinates system. The two spheres may be of different diameters and may be located at any distance from each other. The solution is given in terms of the temperature distribution and the local and average Nusselt numbers. © 2010 American Institute of Chemical Engineers AIChE J, 2010
