How to Estimate Heat Transfer Coefficients?

Hello all,

A heat transfer coefficient is a measure of how well a substance transfers thermal energy to another substance. Every material has its own heat transfer coefficient, which can be looked up in numerous sources, like the "CRC Chemistry and Physics Handbook" or most thermodynamics books. An individual material's coefficient cannot be easily estimated; however, it also is seldom used. But, I am still in confused that how to estimate heat transfer coefficients. So, anyone having idea on it, then please help me.

Thanks a lot!
