The dimensionless temperature for a twodimensional problem is determined by determining the dimensionless temperatures in both directions, and taking their product. 1870C The dimensionless temperature for a threedimensional heat transfer is determined by determining the dimensionless temperatures of onedimensional geometries whose intersection is the three dimensional geometry, and taking their product. 1871C This short cylinder is physically formed by the intersection of a long cylinder and a plane wall. The dimensionless temperatures at the center of plane wall and at the center of the cylinder are determined first. Their product yields the dimensionless temperature at the center of the short cylinder. 1872C The heat transfer in this short cylinder is onedimensional since there is no heat transfer in the axial direction. The temperature will vary in the radial direction only. 1855 Chapter 18 Transient Heat Conduction 1873 A short cylinder is allowed to cool in atmospheric air. The temperatures at the centers of the cylinder and the top surface as well as the total heat transfer from the cylinder for 15 min of cooling are to be determined. Assumptions 1 Heat conduction in the short cylinder is twodimensional, and thus the temperature varies in both the axial x and the radial r directions. 2 The thermal properties of the cylinder are constant. 3 The heat transfer coefficient is constant and uniform over the entire surface. 4 The Fourier number is > 0.2 so that the oneterm approximate solutions (or the transient temperature charts) are applicable (this assumption will be verified).
