During a convective heat transfer process, energy is theoretically transferred by convection alone.
Convective heat transfer in a repair situation involves blowing heated air through a nozzle that has the shape of the component.
Convective heat flows also are accounted for, which is important for large casting sections.
The approach exploits the efficient convective heat transfer mode using a recirculating liquid that expands a flexible film and can perform 45 PCR cycles in 25 minutes.
Moreover, high contribution of convective heat transfer can be observed in the regions near the center of feed channel.
