The Tissue Convective Energy Balance Equation (TCEBE) is a recently derived, general bio-heat transfer equation from which a derivation of Pennes BHTE can be obtained. To accurately implement the TCEBE it is necessary to obtain expressions for the values of the overall heat transfer coefficients between the blood vessels and the tissue. One of the requisite steps in evaluating the overall heat transfer coefficients is to estimate convective heat transfer coefficients between the blood vessels and the tissue. To achieve this goal, a new technique is presented using the second law of thermodynamics to estimate convective heat transfer coefficients in conjugated problems at steady state. One dimensional results obtained are qualitatively similar to two dimensional results from the analytical solution for conjugated problems.
