Unformatted text preview: Chapter 17 Steady Heat Conduction Review Problems 17-134E Steam is produced in copper tubes by heat transferred from another fluid condensing outside the tubes at a high temperature. The rate of heat transfer per foot length of the tube when a 0.01 in thick layer of limestone is formed on the inner surface of the tube is to be determined. Assumptions 1 Heat transfer is steady since there is no indication of any change with time. 2 Heat transfer is one-dimensional since there is thermal symmetry about the centerline and no variation in the axial direction. 3 Thermal properties are constant. 4 Heat transfer coefficients are constant and uniform over the surfaces. Properties The thermal conductivities are given to be k = 223 Btu/h ft F for copper tubes and k = 1.7 Btu/h ft F for limestone.
