ME2024 – Spring 2009 Heat Transfer Problems (HT) 1 ME 2124 Introduction to Thermal-Fluid Engineering Homework Problems – Heat Transfer (HT) – Spring 2009 1. Consider steady-state conditions for one-dimensional conduction in the system below having a thermal conductivity k = 50 W/m K and a thickness L = 0.25 m, with no internal heat gen- eration. Determine the heat flux and the unknown quantity for each case and sketch the temperature distribution, indicating the direction of the heat flux. T 1 ( ° C) T 2 ( ° C) dT/dx (K/m) q ” (W/m 2 ) a) 50 -20 b) -30 -10 c) 70 160 d) 40 -80 e) 30 200 2. In 1-dimensional conduction with steady conditions constant thermal conductivity k no internal energy addition/removal by means other than conduction the temperature gradient is always linear . If a non-linear gradient is observed in a one- dimensional conduction situation either conditions are unsteady, k varies with location, or energy is being added/removed by other means. The inside of a plane wall shows the temperature profile on the figure at right. a) If the non-linearity is due to unsteadiness, which parts of the wall are increasing in energy? Which parts are de- creasing in energy?
