conductivity k and inner temperature, T1. FIND: The outer temperature of the wall, T2. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) One-dimensional conduction in the x-direction, (2) Steady-state conditions, (3) Constant properties. ANALYSIS: The rate equation for conduction through the wall is given by Fourier's law, q cond = q x = q A = -k x
Solving for T2 gives T -T dT A = kA 1 2 . dx L T2 = T1 - q cond L . kA Substituting numerical values, find T2 = 415 C - 3000W 0.025m 0.2W / m K 10m2 T2 = 415 C - 37.5 C T2 = 378 C.

KNOWN: Inner surface temperature and thermal conductivity of a concrete wall. FIND: Heat loss by conduction through the wall as a function of ambient air temperatures ranging from -15 to 38C. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) One-dimensional conduction in the x-direction, (2) Steady-state conditions, (3) Constant properties, (4) Outside wall temperature is that of the ambient air. ANALYSIS: From Fourier's law, it is evident that the gradient, dT dx = - q k , is a constant, and x hence the temperature distribution is linear, if q and k are each constant. The heat flux must be x constant under one-dimensional, steady-state conditions; and k is approximately constant if it depends only weakly on temperature. The heat flux and heat rate when the outside wall temperature is T2 = -15C are 25 C - -15 C dT T1 - T2 q = - k =k = 1W m K = 133.3W m 2 . x dx L 0.30 m q x = q A = 133.3 W m 2 20 m 2 = 2667 W . x

The magnitude of the heat rate increases with increasing thermal conductivity. COMMENTS: Without steady-state conditions and constant k, the temperature distribution in a plane wall would not be linear. PROBLEM 1.3
KNOWN: Dimensions, thermal conductivity and surface temperatures of a concrete slab. Efficiency of gas furnace and cost of natural gas. FIND: Daily cost of heat loss. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady state, (2) One-dimensional conduction, (3) Constant properties. ANALYSIS: The rate of heat loss by conduction through the slab is T -T 7C q = k ( LW ) 1 2 = 1.4 W / m K (11m 8 m ) = 4312 W t 0.20 m

PROBLEM 1.4 KNOWN: Heat flux and surface temperatures associated with a wood slab of prescribed thickness. FIND: Thermal conductivity, k, of the wood. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) One-dimensional conduction in the x-direction, (2) Steady-state conditions, (3) Constant properties. ANALYSIS: Subject to the foregoing assumptions, the thermal conductivity may be determined from Fourier's law, Eq. 1.2. Rearranging, k=q x L W = 40 T - T2 m2 1 ( 40-20 ) C 0.05m k = 0.10 W / m K. < COMMENTS: Note that the C or K temperature units may be used interchangeably when evaluating a temperature difference. PROBLEM 1.5 KNOWN: Inner and outer surface temperatures of a glass window of prescribed dimensions. FIND: Heat loss through window. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) One-dimensional conduction in the x-direction, (2) Steady-state conditions, (3) Constant properties. ANALYSIS: Subject to the foregoing conditions the heat flux may be computed from Fourier's law, Eq. 1.2. T -T q = k 1 2 x L W (15-5 ) C q = 1.4 x m K 0.005m q = 2800 W/m 2 . x Since the heat flux is uniform over the surface, the heat loss (rate) is q = q A x q = 2800 W / m2 3m2 q = 8400 W. COMMENTS: A linear temperature distribution exists in the glass for the prescribed conditions. < PROBLEM 1.6 KNOWN: Width, height, thickness and thermal conductivity of a single pane window and the air space of a double pane window. Representative winter surface temperatures of single pane and air space. FIND: Heat loss through single and double pane windows. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) One-dimensional conduction through glass or air, (2) Steady-state conditions, (3) Enclosed air of double pane window is stagnant (negligible buoyancy induced motion). ANALYSIS: From Fourier's law, the heat losses are $ T1 - T2 2 35 C = 19, 600 W qg = k g A = 1.4 W/m K 2m L 0.005m Single Pane: ( ) T -T 25 $C Double Pane: qa = k a A 1 2 = 0.024 2m2 = 120 W L 0.010 m COMMENTS: Losses associated with a single pane are unacceptable and would remain excessive, even if the thickness of the glass were doubled to match that of the air space. The principal advantage of the double pane construction resides with the low thermal conductivity of air (~ 60 times smaller than that of glass). For a fixed ambient outside air temperature, use of the double pane construction would also increase the surface temperature of the glass exposed to the room (inside) air.

< L = 0.054m = 54mm. COMMENTS: The corners will cause local departures from one-dimensional conduction and a slightly larger heat loss. PROBLEM 1.8 KNOWN: Dimensions and thermal conductivity of food/beverage container. Inner and outer surface temperatures. FIND: Heat flux through container wall and total heat load. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state conditions, (2) Negligible heat transfer through bottom wall, (3) Uniform surface temperatures and one-dimensional conduction through remaining walls. ANALYSIS: From Fourier's law, Eq. 1.2, the heat flux is $ T - T 0.023 W/m K ( 20 - 2 ) C = k 2 1 = q = 16.6 W/m 2 L 0.025 m Since the flux is uniform over each of the five walls through which heat is transferred, the heat load is q = q A total = q H ( 2W1 + 2W2 ) + W1 W2 q = 16.6 W/m2 0.6m (1.6m + 1.2m ) + ( 0.8m 0.6m ) = 35.9 W < < COMMENTS: The corners and edges of the container create local departures from onedimensional conduction, which increase the heat load. However, for H, W1, W2 >> L, the effect is negligible. PROBLEM 1.9 KNOWN: Masonry wall of known thermal conductivity has a heat rate which is 80% of that through a composite wall of prescribed thermal conductivity and thickness. FIND: Thickness of masonry wall. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Both walls subjected to same surface temperatures, (2) Onedimensional conduction, (3) Steady-state conditions, (4) Constant properties. ANALYSIS: For steady-state conditions, the conduction heat flux through a one-dimensional wall follows from Fourier's law, Eq. 1.2, q = k T L where T represents the difference in surface temperatures. Since T is the same for both walls, it follows that L1 = L2 k1 q 2. k2 q1 With the heat fluxes related as q1 = 0.8 q 2 L1 = 100mm 0.75 W / m K 1 = 375mm. 0.25 W / m K 0.8 < COMMENTS: Not knowing the temperature difference across the walls, we cannot find the value of the heat rate. PROBLEM 1.10 KNOWN: Thickness, diameter and inner surface temperature of bottom of pan used to boil water. Rate of heat transfer to the pan. FIND: Outer surface temperature of pan for an aluminum and a copper bottom. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) One-dimensional, steady-state conduction through bottom of pan. ANALYSIS: From Fourier's law, the rate of heat transfer by conduction through the bottom of the pan is T -T q = kA 1 2 L Hence, T1 = T2 + qL kA 2 where A = D2 / 4 = (0.2m ) / 4 = 0.0314 m 2 . Aluminum: T1 = 110 $C + 600W ( 0.005 m ) 240 W/m K 0.0314 m 2 600W (0.005 m ) 390 W/m K 0.0314 m2 ( ) ) = 110.40 $C Copper: T1 = 110 $C + ( = 110.25 $C COMMENTS: Although the temperature drop across the bottom is slightly larger for aluminum (due to its smaller thermal conductivity), it is sufficiently small to be negligible for both materials. To a good approximation, the bottom may be considered isothermal at T 110 C, which is a desirable feature of pots and pans. PROBLEM 1.11 KNOWN: Dimensions and thermal conductivity of a chip. Power dissipated on one surface. FIND: Temperature drop across the chip. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state conditions, (2) Constant properties, (3) Uniform heat dissipation, (4) Negligible heat loss from back and sides, (5) One-dimensional conduction in chip. ANALYSIS: All of the electrical power dissipated at the back surface of the chip is transferred by conduction through the chip. Hence, from Fourier's law, P = q = kA or T = t P kW 2 = 0.001 m 4 W 150 W/m K ( 0.005 m ) T t 2 T = 1.1 C. < COMMENTS: For fixed P, the temperature drop across the chip decreases with increasing k and W, as well as with decreasing t. PROBLEM 1.12 KNOWN: Heat flux gage with thin-film thermocouples on upper and lower surfaces; output voltage, calibration constant, thickness and thermal conductivity of gage. FIND: (a) Heat flux, (b) Precaution when sandwiching gage between two materials. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state conditions, (2) One-dimensional heat conduction in gage, (3) Constant properties. ANALYSIS: (a) Fourier's law applied to the gage can be written as q = k T x and the gradient can be expressed as T E / N = x SABt where N is the number of differentially connected thermocouple junctions, SAB is the Seebeck coefficient for type K thermocouples (A-chromel and B-alumel), and x = t is the gage thickness. Hence, q = q = kE NSABt 1.4 W / m K 350 10-6 V = 9800 W / m2 . -6 V / $ C 0.25 10-3 m 5 40 10 < (b) The major precaution to be taken with this type of gage is to match its thermal conductivity with that of the material on which it is installed. If the gage is bonded between laminates (see sketch above) and its thermal conductivity is significantly different from that of the laminates, one dimensional heat flow will be disturbed and the gage will read incorrectly. COMMENTS: If the thermal conductivity of the gage is lower than that of the laminates, will it indicate heat fluxes that are systematically high or low? PROBLEM 1.13
KNOWN: Hand experiencing convection heat transfer with moving air and water. FIND: Determine which condition feels colder. Contrast these results with a heat loss of 30 W/m2 under normal room conditions. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Temperature is uniform over the hand's surface, (2) Convection coefficient is uniform over the hand, and (3) Negligible radiation exchange between hand and surroundings in the case of air flow. ANALYSIS: The hand will feel colder for the condition which results in the larger heat loss. The heat loss can be determined from Newton's law of cooling, Eq. 1.3a, written as q = h ( Ts - T )
For the air stream: q = 40 W m 2 K 30 - ( -5) K = 1, 400 W m 2 air For the water stream: 2 2 q water = 900 W m K (30 - 10 ) K = 18,000 W m < < COMMENTS: The heat loss for the hand in the water stream is an order of magnitude larger than when in the air stream for the given temperature and convection coefficient conditions. In contrast, the heat loss in a normal room environment is only 30 W/m2 which is a factor of 400 times less than the loss in the air stream. In the room environment, the hand would feel comfortable; in the air and water streams, as you probably know from experience, the hand would feel uncomfortably cold since the heat loss is excessively high. PROBLEM 1.14
KNOWN: Power required to maintain the surface temperature of a long, 25-mm diameter cylinder with an imbedded electrical heater for different air velocities. FIND: (a) Determine the convection coefficient for each of the air velocity conditions and display the results graphically, and (b) Assuming that the convection coefficient depends upon air velocity as h = CVn, determine the parameters C and n.

ANALYSIS: (a) From an overall energy balance on the cylinder, the power dissipated by the electrical heater is transferred by convection to the air stream. Using Newtons law of cooling on a per unit length basis, Pe = h ( D )(Ts - T ) where Pe is the electrical power dissipated per unit length of the cylinder. For the V = 1 m/s condition, using the data from the table above, find h = 450 W m 0.025 m 300 - 40 C = 22.0 W m 2K ( ) < Repeating the calculations, find the convection coefficients for the remaining conditions which are tabulated above and plotted below. Note that h is not linear with respect to the air velocity. (b) To determine the (C,n) parameters, we plotted h vs. V on log-log coordinates. Choosing C = 22.12 W/m2K(s/m)n, assuring a match at V = 1, we can readily find the exponent n from the slope of the h vs. V curve. From the trials with n = 0.8, 0.6 and 0.5, we recognize that n = 0.6 is a reasonable choice. Hence, C = 22.12 and n = 0.6. <

FIND: Convection coefficients for the water and air flow convection processes, hw and ha, respectively. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Flow is cross-wise over cylinder which is very long in the direction normal to flow. ANALYSIS: The convection heat rate from the cylinder per unit length of the cylinder has the form q = h ( D ) ( Ts - T ) and solving for the heat transfer convection coefficient, find h= q . D (Ts - T ) Substituting numerical values for the water and air situations: Water hw = 0.030m (90-25 ) C
400 W/m 28 103 W/m = 4,570 W/m 2 K < < Air ha = 0.030m (90-25 ) C = 65 W/m 2 K. COMMENTS: Note that the air velocity is 10 times that of the water flow, yet hw 70 ha. These values for the convection coefficient are typical for forced convection heat transfer with liquids and gases. See Table 1.1. PROBLEM 1.16 KNOWN: Dimensions of a cartridge heater. Heater power. Convection coefficients in air and water at a prescribed temperature. FIND: Heater surface temperatures in water and air. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state conditions, (2) All of the electrical power is transferred to the fluid by convection, (3) Negligible heat transfer from ends.

2 < Ts = 20 C + 3183 C = 3203 C. < COMMENTS: (1) Air is much less effective than water as a heat transfer fluid. Hence, the cartridge temperature is much higher in air, so high, in fact, that the cartridge would melt. (2) In air, the high cartridge temperature would render radiation significant. PROBLEM 1.17 KNOWN: Length, diameter and calibration of a hot wire anemometer. Temperature of air stream. Current, voltage drop and surface temperature of wire for a particular application. FIND: Air velocity SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state conditions, (2) Negligible heat transfer from the wire by natural convection or radiation. ANALYSIS: If all of the electric energy is transferred by convection to the air, the following equality must be satisfied Pelec = EI = hA (Ts - T ) where A = DL = ( 0.0005m 0.02m ) = 3.14 10-5 m 2 .

PROBLEM 1.18 KNOWN: Chip width and maximum allowable temperature. Coolant conditions. FIND: Maximum allowable chip power for air and liquid coolants. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state conditions, (2) Negligible heat transfer from sides and bottom, (3) Chip is at a uniform temperature (isothermal), (4) Negligible heat transfer by radiation in air. ANALYSIS: All of the electrical power dissipated in the chip is transferred by convection to the coolant. Hence, P=q and from Newton's law of cooling, P = hA(T - T) = h W (T - T). In air, Pmax = 200 W/m K(0.005 m) (85 - 15) C = 0.35 W. In the dielectric liquid Pmax = 3000 W/m K(0.005 m) (85-15) C = 5.25 W.
2 2 2 2 2 < < COMMENTS: Relative to liquids, air is a poor heat transfer fluid. Hence, in air the chip can dissipate far less energy than in the dielectric liquid. PROBLEM 1.19 KNOWN: Length, diameter and maximum allowable surface temperature of a power transistor. Temperature and convection coefficient for air cooling. FIND: Maximum allowable power dissipation. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state conditions, (2) Negligible heat transfer through base of transistor, (3) Negligible heat transfer by radiation from surface of transistor. ANALYSIS: Subject to the foregoing assumptions, the power dissipated by the transistor is equivalent to the rate at which heat is transferred by convection to the air. Hence, Pelec = q conv = hA (Ts - T ) 2 where A = DL + D2 / 4 = 0.012m 0.01m + ( 0.012m ) / 4 = 4.90 10-4 m 2 . For a maximum allowable surface temperature of 85C, the power is Pelec = 100 W/m2 K 4.90 10-4 m 2 ( ) ( ) (85 - 25)$ C = 2.94 W < COMMENTS: (1) For the prescribed surface temperature and convection coefficient, radiation will be negligible relative to convection. However, conduction through the base could be significant, thereby permitting operation at a larger power. (2) The local convection coefficient varies over the surface, and hot spots could exist if there are locations at which the local value of h is substantially smaller than the prescribed average value. PROBLEM 1.20
KNOWN: Air jet impingement is an effective means of cooling logic chips. FIND: Procedure for measuring convection coefficients associated with a 10 mm 10 mm chip. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: Steady-state conditions. ANALYSIS: One approach would be to use the actual chip-substrate system, Case (a), to perform the measurements. In this case, the electric power dissipated in the chip would be transferred from the chip by radiation and conduction (to the substrate), as well as by convection to the jet. An energy balance for the chip yields q elec = q conv + q cond + q rad . Hence, with q conv = hA ( Ts - T ) , where A = 100 mm2 is the surface area of the chip, q - q cond - q rad h = elec A (Ts - T ) (1) While the electric power ( q elec ) and the jet ( T ) and surface ( Ts ) temperatures may be measured, losses from the chip by conduction and radiation would have to be estimated. Unless the losses are negligible (an unlikely condition), the accuracy of the procedure could be compromised by uncertainties associated with determining the conduction and radiation losses. A second approach, Case (b), could involve fabrication of a heater assembly for which the conduction and radiation losses are controlled and minimized. A 10 mm 10 mm copper block (k ~ 400 W/mK) could be inserted in a poorly conducting substrate (k < 0.1 W/mK) and a patch heater could be applied to the back of the block and insulated from below. If conduction to both the substrate and insulation could thereby be rendered negligible, heat would be transferred almost exclusively through the block. If radiation were rendered negligible by applying a low emissivity coating ( < 0.1) to the surface of the copper block, virtually all of the heat would be transferred by convection to the jet. Hence, q cond and q rad may be neglected in equation (1), and the expression may be used to accurately determine h from the known (A) and measured ( q elec , Ts , T ) quantities. COMMENTS: Since convection coefficients associated with gas flows are generally small, concurrent heat transfer by radiation and/or conduction must often be considered. However, jet impingement is one of the more effective means of transferring heat by convection and convection coefficients well in excess of 100 W/m2K may be achieved. PROBLEM 1.21 KNOWN: Upper temperature set point, Tset, of a bimetallic switch and convection heat transfer coefficient between clothes dryer air and exposed surface of switch. FIND: Electrical power for heater to maintain Tset when air temperature is T = 50C. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state conditions, (2) Electrical heater is perfectly insulated from dryer wall, (3) Heater and switch are isothermal at Tset, (4) Negligible heat transfer from sides of heater or switch, (5) Switch surface, As, loses heat only by convection. ANALYSIS: Define a control volume around the bimetallic switch which experiences heat input from the heater and convection heat transfer to the dryer air. That is, Ein - Eout = 0 qelec - hAs ( Tset - T ) = 0. The electrical power required is, qelec = hAs ( Tset - T ) qelec = 25 W/m2 K 30 10-6 m2 ( 70 - 50 ) K=15 mW. < COMMENTS: (1) This type of controller can achieve variable operating air temperatures with a single set-point, inexpensive, bimetallic-thermostatic switch by adjusting power levels to the heater. (2) Will the heater power requirement increase or decrease if the insulation pad is other than perfect? PROBLEM 1.22

FIND: Convection heat transfer coefficient for this condition. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Plate is isothermal and of uniform temperature, (2) Negligible radiation exchange with surroundings, (3) Negligible heat lost through suspension wires. ANALYSIS: As shown in the cooling curve above, the plate temperature decreases with time. The condition of interest is for time to. For a control surface about the plate, the conservation of energy requirement is E in - E out = E st dT - 2hA s ( Ts - T ) = M c p dt

(2) We will later consider the criterion for determining whether the isothermal plate assumption is reasonable. If the thermal conductivity of the present plate were high (such as aluminum or copper), the criterion would be satisfied. PROBLEM 1.23

PROBLEM 1.24 KNOWN: Air and wall temperatures of a room. Surface temperature, convection coefficient and emissivity of a person in the room. FIND: Basis for difference in comfort level between summer and winter. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Person may be approximated as a small object in a large enclosure. ANALYSIS: Thermal comfort is linked to heat loss from the human body, and a chilled feeling is associated with excessive heat loss. Because the temperature of the room air is fixed, the different summer and winter comfort levels can not be attributed to convection heat transfer from the body. In both cases, the heat flux is 2 $ 2 Summer and Winter: q conv = h ( Ts - T ) = 2 W/m K 12 C = 24 W/m However, the heat flux due to radiation will differ, with values of Summer:

COMMENTS: For a representative surface area of A = 1.5 m , the heat losses are qconv = 36 W, qrad(summer) = 42.5 W and qrad(winter) = 143.1 W. The winter time radiation loss is significant and if maintained over a 24 h period would amount to 2,950 kcal.

Because the radiation rate equation is non-linear with respect to temperature, the power dissipation will likewise not be linear with surface temperature. (2) What is the maximum power dissipation that is possible if the surface temperature is not to exceed 85C?

The surface would, of course, cool due to this heat loss and its temperature, as well as the heat loss, would decrease with increasing time.

For this range of surface and surroundings temperatures, the radiation and free convection coefficients are of comparable magnitude for moderate values of the emissivity, say > 0.2. The approximate expression for the linearized radiation coefficient is valid within 2% for these conditions. (b) The above expressions for the radiation coefficients, hr and hr,a, are used for the workpiece at Ts = 25C placed inside a furnace with walls which may vary from 100 to 1000C. The relative error, (hr hra)/hr, will be independent of the surface emissivity and is plotted as a function of Tsur. For Tsur > 150C, the approximate expression provides estimates which are in error more than 5%.

SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state conditions, (2) Radiation exchange between a small surface and a large enclosure, (3) Negligible heat transfer from sides of chip or from back of chip by conduction through the substrate. ANALYSIS: Subject to the foregoing assumptions, electric power dissipation by the chip must be balanced by convection and radiation heat transfer from the chip. Hence, from Eq. (1.10), 4 4 Pelec = q conv + q rad = hA (Ts - T ) + A Ts - Tsur 2 where A = L2 = (0.015m ) = 2.25 10-4 m 2 .

For Ts = 85C and T = 25C, the natural convection coefficient is 11.7 W/m K. 2 Even for forced convection with h = 250 W/m K, the power dissipation is well below that associated with many of today's processors. To provide acceptable cooling, it is often necessary to attach the chip to a highly conducting substrate and to thereby provide an additional heat transfer mechanism due to conduction from the back surface.

The energy generation term E g is associated with conversion of some other energy form (chemical, electrical, electromagnetic or nuclear) to thermal energy.

The radiative heat flux is independent of L and highly non-linear with Th, but does not approach that for the highest conduction heat rate until Th approaches 1200C. The general trends for the initial temperature-time change, (dTw/dt)i, follow those for the heat fluxes. To reach 900C in 10 s requires an average temperature-time change rate of 90 K/s. Recognizing that (dTw/dt) will decrease with increasing Tw, this rate could be met only with a very high Th and the smallest L. PROBLEM 1.42

We conclude that the radiation exchange processes control the initial time rate of temperature change and the steady-state temperature. If the wafer were elevated above the present operating position, its temperature would increase, since the lower surface would begin to experience radiant exchange with progressively more of the hot zone chamber. Conversely, by lowering the wafer, the upper surface would experience less radiant exchange with the hot zone chamber, and its temperature would decrease. The temperature-distance trend might appear as shown in the sketch. PROBLEM 1.44 KNOWN: Radial distribution of heat dissipation in a cylindrical container of radioactive wastes.

Note that, for k = 0.1 W/mK, q elec = -2 mW, where the minus sign implies the need for a heat sink, rather than a heat source, to maintain the detector at 195 K. In this case q rad exceeds q cond , and a heat sink would be needed to dispose of the difference. A conductivity of k = 0.114 W/mK yields a precise balance between q rad and q cond . Hence to circumvent heaving to use a heat sink, while minimizing the heater power requirement, k should exceed, but remain as close as possible to the value of 0.114 W/mK.

FIND: (a) Which option to reduce heat loss to the room is more effective: reduce by a factor of two 2 the convection coefficient (from 15 to 7.5 W/m K) or the emissivity (from 0.8 to 0.4) and (b) Show 2 graphically the heat loss as a function of the convection coefficient for the range 5 h 20 W/m K for emissivities of 0.2, 0.4 and 0.8. Comment on the relative efficacy of reducing heat losses associated with the convection and radiation processes. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state conditions, (2) Radiation exchange between pipe and the room is between a small surface in a much larger enclosure, (3) The surface emissivity and absorptivity are equal, and (4) Restriction of the air flow does not alter the radiation exchange process between the pipe and the room.

COMMENTS: (1) In Example 1.2, Comment 3, we read that the heat rates by convection and radiation exchange were comparable for the base case conditions (577 vs. 421 W/m). It follows that reducing the key transport parameter (h or ) by a factor of two yields comparable reductions in the heat loss. Coating the pipe to reduce the emissivity might to be the more practical option as it may be difficult to control air movement. (2) For this pipe size and thermal conditions (Ts and T), the minimum possible convection coefficient 2 is approximately 7.5 W/m K, corresponding to free convection heat transfer to quiescent ambient air. Larger values of h are a consequence of forced air flow conditions. (3) The Workspace for the IHT program to calculate the heat loss and generate the graph for the heat loss as a function of the convection coefficient for selected emissivities is shown below. It is good practice to provide commentary with the code making your solution logic clear, and to summarize the results.

PROBLEM 1.72(a) KNOWN: Solar radiation is incident on an asphalt paving. FIND: Relevant heat transfer processes. SCHEMATIC: The relevant processes shown on the schematic include: qS q rad Incident solar radiation, a large portion of which q S,abs , is absorbed by the asphalt surface, Radiation emitted by the surface to the air, q conv Convection heat transfer from the surface to the air, and q cond Conduction heat transfer from the surface into the asphalt. Applying the surface energy balance, Eq. 1.12, q S,abs - q - q conv = q cond . rad COMMENTS: (1) q cond and q conv could be evaluated from Eqs. 1.1 and 1.3, respectively. (2) It has been assumed that the pavement surface temperature is higher than that of the underlying pavement and the air, in which case heat transfer by conduction and convection are from the surface.

FIND: Comparison of (a) cooking in a microwave oven with a conventional radiant or convection oven and (b) a microwave clothes dryer with a conventional dryer. (a) Microwave cooking occurs as a result of volumetric thermal energy generation throughout the food, without heating of the food container or the oven wall. Conventional cooking relies on radiant heat transfer from the oven walls and/or convection heat transfer from the air space to the surface of the food and subsequent heat transfer by conduction to the core of the food. Microwave cooking is more efficient and is achieved in less time. (b) In a microwave dryer, the microwave radiation would heat the water, but not the fabric, directly (the fabric would be heated indirectly by energy transfer from the water). By heating the water, energy would go directly into evaporation, unlike a conventional dryer where the walls and air are first heated electrically or by a gas heater, and thermal energy is subsequently transferred to the wet clothes. The microwave dryer would still require a rotating drum and air flow to remove the water vapor, but is able to operate more efficiently and at lower temperatures. For a more detailed description of microwave drying, see Mechanical Engineering, March 1993, page 120.

SCHEMATIC: Neglecting evaporation from the surface of the skin, the only relevant heat transfer processes are: q conv q rad Convection heat transfer from the skin to the room air, and Net radiation exchange between the surface of the skin and the surroundings (walls of the room). You are not imagining things. Even though the room air is maintained at a fixed temperature (T = 15C), the inner surface temperature of the outside walls, Tsur, will decrease with decreasing outside air temperature. Upon exposure to these walls, body heat loss will be larger due to increased qrad.

Assuming that the bottom (inner) surface temperature exceeds the top (outer) surface temperature Ts,i > Ts,o , heat transfer is ( ) in the direction shown. Heat may be transferred to the inner surface by convection and radiation, whereupon it is transferred through the composite by q cond,i q conv,hc q cond,hc q rad,hc q cond,o Conduction through the inner solid slab, Free convection through the cellular airspace, Conduction through the honeycomb wall, Radiation between the honeycomb surfaces, and Conduction through the outer solid slab. Heat may then be transferred from the outer surface by convection and radiation. Note that for a single cell under steady state conditions, q rad,i + q conv,i = q cond,i = q conv,hc + q cond,hc +q rad,hc = q cond,o = q rad,o + q conv,o . COMMENTS: Performance would be enhanced by using materials of low thermal conductivity, k, and emissivity, . Evacuating the airspace would enhance performance by eliminating heat transfer due to free convection.

SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Junction is small relative to channel walls, (2) Steady-state conditions, (3) Negligible heat transfer by conduction through the thermocouple leads. ANALYSIS: (a) The relevant heat transfer processes are: q rad q conv Net radiation transfer from the junction to the walls, and Convection transfer from the gas to the junction. (b) From a surface energy balance on the junction, q conv = q rad or from Eqs. 1.3a and 1.7,
4 4 h A Tj - Tg = A Tj - Ts . ( ) ( ) To satisfy this equality, it follows that Ts < Tj < Tg . That is, the junction assumes a temperature between that of the channel wall and the gas, thereby sensing a temperature which is less than that of the gas. (c) The measurement error Tg - Tj is reduced by using a radiation shield as shown in the schematic. The junction now exchanges radiation with the shield, whose temperature must exceed that of the channel wall. The radiation loss from the junction is therefore reduced, and its temperature more closely approaches that of the gas.

From the T vs. GS plot with h = 5 W/m2K, note that the solar irradiation has a very significant effect on the temperatures. The fact that Ts is less than the ambient air temperature, T , and, in the case of very low values of GS, below freezing, is a consequence of the large magnitude of the emissive power E.

Insulation thickness only has a minor effect on Ts,2 for either option. In the To vs. (r2 r1) plot, note that, for all the options, the effect of increased insulation is to increase the reaction temperature. With k = 0.01 W/mK, the reaction temperature increases beyond 95C with less than 2 mm insulation. For the case with h = 15 W/m2K, the reaction temperature begins to approach 95C with insulation thickness around 10 mm. We conclude that by selecting the proper insulation thickness and controlling the convection coefficient, the reaction could be operated around 95C such that the outer surface temperature would not exceed 45C.

By applying a surface energy balance on the surface x = +L as shown in the schematic, determine the temperatures at the mid-point, x = 0, and the exposed surface, x + L. q ( + L ) - q x conv = 0 q / 2 - h T ( + L ) - T = 0 o Ein - Eout = 0 where q ( + L ) = q / 2 x o T1 ( + L ) = q / 2h + T = 4000 W / m 2 / 2 400 W / m 2 K + 20C = 25C o

The key features of the distribution are its symmetry about the heater plane and its linear dependence with distance. Continued ..... < PROBLEM 2.53 (Cont.) (b) Case 2: sudden loss of coolant with the existence of an adiabatic condition on surface x = +L. For this situation, all the heater power will be conducted to the coolant through the left-hand plate. From a surface energy balance and application of Fourier's law as done for part (a), find T2 ( - L ) = q / h + T = 4000 W / m 2 / 400 W / m 2 K + 20C = 30C o T2 ( 0 ) = T2 ( - L ) + q L / k = 30C + 4000 W / m 2 0.025 m / 5 W / m K = 50C o The temperature distribution is shown on the T-x coordinates above and labeled Case 2. The distribution is linear in the left-hand plate, with the maximum value at the mid-point. Since no heat flows through the right-hand plate, the gradient must zero and this plate is at the maximum temperature as well. The maximum temperature is higher than for Case 1 because the heat flux through the left-hand plate has increased two-fold. < < (c) Case 3: sudden loss of coolant occurs at the x = -L surface also. For this situation, there is no heat 2 transfer out of either plate, so that for a 15-minute period, to, the heater dissipates 4000 W/m and then is deactivated. To determine the eventual, uniform steady-state temperature distribution, apply the conservation of energy requirement on a time-interval basis, Eq. 1.11b. The initial condition corresponds to the temperature distribution of Case 2, and the final condition will be a uniform, elevated temperature Tf = T3 representing Case 3. We have used T as the reference condition for the energy terms.

Note the temperatures for the locations at time t = 0 corresponding to the instant when the surface x = - L becomes adiabatic. These temperatures correspond to the distribution for Case 2. The heater remains energized for yet another 15 minutes and then is deactivated. The midpoint temperature, T(0,t), is always the hottest location and the maximum value slightly exceeds the final temperature T3. PROBLEM 2.54

SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) One-dimensional, radial conduction, (2) Constant properties, (3) Uniform volumetric heating, (4) Negligible radiation from surface of wire. ANALYSIS: (a) The general form of the heat equation for cylindrical coordinates is given by Eq. 2.20. For one-dimensional, radial conduction and constant properties, the equation reduces to

Performing an energy balance for a control surface about the wire, - E out + E g = 0, it follows that -2 ro L q ( ro , t ) + Pelec = 0. Hence,
q ( ro , t ) = Pelec 2 ro L = 500 W 2 ( 0.001m ) 0.5m = 1.59 10 W / m
5 2 < COMMENTS: The symmetry condition at r = 0 imposes the requirement that T / r r = 0 = 0, and hence q ( 0, t ) = 0 throughout the process. The temperature at ro, and hence the convection heat flux, increases steadily during the start-up, and since conduction to the surface must be balanced by convection from the surface at all times, T / r r = r also increases during the start-up.

As expected, Ts,i and Ts,o are linear with changes in the outside air temperature. The difference between Ts,i and Ts,o increases with increasing convection coefficient, since the heat flux through the window likewise increases. This difference is larger at lower outside air temperatures for the same reason. Note that with ho = 2 W/m2K, Ts,i - Ts,o, is too small to show on the plot. ho Ts,o = T,o - q = -10 C - 968 W m 2

Changes in ho influence the heat loss at small values of ho, for which the outside convection resistance is not negligible relative to the total resistance. However, the resistance becomes negligible with increasing ho, particularly for the triple pane window, and changes in ho have little effect on the heat loss. COMMENTS: The largest contribution to the thermal resistance is due to conduction across the enclosed air. Note that this air could be in motion due to free convection currents. If the corresponding convection coefficient exceeded 3.5 W/m2K, the thermal resistance would be less than that predicted by assuming conduction across stagnant air.

This reduces Rtot to 826 10 C/W, which is a 0.5% decrease and hence a 0.5% increase in q. (d) From the expression for Rtot in part (b), note that the insulation resistance, Lb/kbA, is 752/830 90% of the total resistance. Hence, this material layer controls the resistance of the wall. From part (c) note that a 5-fold decrease in the outer convection resistance due to an increase in the wind velocity has a negligible effect on the heat loss.

Hence, although measures to reduce R i would have a negligible effect on q for the liquid coolant, some improvement c may be gained for air-cooled conditions. As shown in the table of part (b), use of an aluminum oxide board increase q by 19% (from 2159 to 2574 W/m2) by reducing R i from 0.0301 to 0.0253 m2K/W. i Because the initial contact resistance ( R = 10 -4 m 2 K W ) is already much less than R i , any reduction t,c in its value would have a negligible effect on q .

Assuming a tube outer surface temperature of Ts = T,i = 279K, large surroundings at Tsur = T,o = 296K, and an emissivity of = 0.7, the heat gain due to net
4 radiation exchange with the surroundings is q = ( 2 r2 ) Tsur - Ts4 = 7.7 W / m. Hence, the net rad ( ) rate of heat transfer by radiation to the tube surface is comparable to that by convection, and the assumption of negligible radiation is inappropriate. (2) If heat transfer from the air is by natural convection, the value of ho with the insulation would actually be less than the value for the bare tube, thereby further reducing the heat gain. Use of the insulation would also increase the outer surface temperature, thereby reducing net radiation transfer from the surroundings. (3) The critical radius is rcr = kins/h 8 mm < r2. Hence, as indicated by the calculations, heat transfer is reduced by the insulation. PROBLEM 3.40

COMMENTS: 1. The annual energy and costs savings associated with insulating the steam line are substantial, as is the reduction in the outer surface temperature (from Ts,o 502 K for r3 = r2, to 309 K for r3 = 0.0575 m). 2. The increase in R to a maximum value of 0.63 mK/W at r3 = 0.0455 m and the subsequent decay rad is due to the competing effects of hrad and A = (1 2 r3 ) . Because the initial decay in T3 = Ts,o with 3 increasing r3, and hence, the reduction in hrad, is more pronounced than the increase in A , R 3 rad increases with r3. However, as the decay in Ts,o, and hence hrad, becomes less pronounced, the increase in A becomes more pronounced and R decreases with increasing r3. rad 3 PROBLEM 3.51

Hence, under the best of 8 3 conditions, q 7 10 W/m corresponds to the maximum allowable energy generation. However, if coolant flow conditions are constrained to provide values of h < 10,000 W/m2K, volumetric heating would have to be reduced.

Clearly, the ability to control the maximum fuel temperature by increasing h is limited, and even for h , Tf(0) exceeds 1000 K. The overall temperature drop, Tf(0) - T, is influenced principally by the low thermal conductivity of the fuel material.

For h1 = 100, 500 and 1000 W/m2K, respectively, the ratio of the temperature drop between the inner surface and the air to the temperature drop across the tube, (Ts,1 - T,1)/(Ts,2 - Ts,1), decreases from 970/30 = 32.3 to 194/30 = 6.5 and 97/30 = 3.2.

Although the tube outer and insulation inner surface temperatures, Ts,2 = T(r2), increase with increasing insulation thickness, Fig. (c), the insulation outer surface temperature decreases.

(1) Increasing length of the fin portions: with Lo = 200 mm, the fin already behaves as an infinitely long fin. Hence, increasing Lo will not result in reducing To. (2) Decreasing the thermal conductivity: backsolving the above equation set with T0 = 100C, find the required thermal conductivity is k = 14 W/mK. Hence, we could select a stainless steel alloy; see Table A.1. (3) Increasing the insulation thickness: find that for To = 100C, the required insulation thickness would be Lins = 211 mm. This design solution might be physically and economically unattractive. (4) A very practical solution would be to introduce thermal contact resistance between the rod base and the furnace wall by "tack welding" (rather than a continuous bead around the rod circumference) the rod in two or three places. (5) A less practical solution would be to increase the convection coefficient, since to do so, would require an air handling unit.

At L = 3 mm, results differ by 14% and 13% for the aluminum and steel, respectively. The Case A and B results approach those of the infinite fin approximation more quickly for stainless steel due to the larger temperature gradients, |dT/dx|, for the smaller value of k. COMMENTS: From the results of Part (a), we see there is a slight reduction in performance (smaller values of q , f and f , as well as a larger value of R t,f ) associated with insulating the tip. f Although f = 0 for the infinite fin, q and f are substantially larger than results for L = 10 mm, f indicating that performance may be significantly improved by increasing L.

The general solution for the temperature distribution is ( x ) = C1 emx + C2 e-mx o = C1 + C2

ANALYSIS: (a, b) The effect of thermal conductivity on the temperature distribution when all other conditions (To, h, L) remain the same is to reduce the minimum temperature with decreasing thermal conductivity. Hence, as shown in the sketch, the mid-span temperatures are TB (0.5L) < TA (0.5L) for kB < kA. The temperature distribution is, of course, symmetrical about the mid-span.

However, for Cases A through C, the reduction in A t is more than balanced by an increase in f (and o ), causing a reduction in R t,o and hence an increase in q c . As the fin efficiency approaches its limiting value of f = 1, reductions in A t due to increasing w are no longer balanced by increases in f , and q c begins to decrease. Hence there is an optimum value of w, which depends on Lf . For the conditions of this problem, Lf = 10 mm and w = 0.55 mm provide the largest heat dissipation. Problem 3.137

(2) Design A features 54 fins compared to 238 fins for Design B. Also very significant to the performance comparison is the magnitude of the convection coefficient which is 3 times larger for Design B.

Increasing the fin thickness to t = 3 mm, with = 2 mm, reduces the number of fins per unit length to 200. Hence, although the fin efficiency increases ( Kf = 0.930), the reduction in the total surface area ( A = 5.72 m) yields an increase in the resistance of the fin t array ( R ,o = 0.00188 mK/W), and hence a reduction in the heat rate ( q = 38,700 W/m) and an increase t in the interface temperatures ( Ti = 415 K, T1,i = 404 K, T1,o = 394 K, and Tb = 393 K).

ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state conditions, (2) Negligible heat transfer from top and bottom of transistor, (3) One-dimensional radial heat transfer, (4) Constant properties, (5) Negligible radiation. ANALYSIS: With 2 r2 = 0.0188 m and Nt = 0.0084 m, the existing gap between fins is extremely small (0.87 mm). Hence, by increasing N and/or t, it would become even more difficult to maintain satisfactory airflow between the fins, and this option is not particularly attractive. Because the fin efficiency for the prescribed conditions is close to unity ( f = 0.998), there is little advantage to replacing the aluminum with a material of higher thermal conductivity (e.g. Cu with k ~ 400 W/mK). However, the large value of f suggests that significant benefit could be gained by increasing the fin length, L = r3 r2 . It is also evident that the thermal contact resistance is large, and from Table 3.2, it's clear that a significant reduction could be effected by using indium foil or a conducting grease in the contact zone. Specifically, a reduction of R from 10-3 to 10-4 or even 10-5 m2K/W is certainly feasible. t,c Table 1.1 suggests that, by increasing the velocity of air flowing over the fins, a larger convection coefficient may be achieved. A value of h = 100 W/m2K would not be unreasonable. As options for enhancing heat transfer, we therefore use the IHT Performance Calculation, Extended Surface Model for the Straight Fin Array to explore the effect of parameter variations over the ranges 10 L 20 mm, 10-5 R 10-3 m2K/W and 25 h 100 W/m2K. As shown below, there is a t,c significant enhancement in heat transfer associated with reducing R from 10-3 to 10-4 m2K/W, for t,c which R t,c decreases from 13.26 to 1.326 K/W. At this value of R , the reduction in R t,o from t,c 23.45 to 12.57 K/W which accompanies an increase in L from 10 to 20 mm becomes significant, yielding a heat rate of q t = 4.30 W for R = 10-4 m2K/W and L = 20 mm.

-1 ( )1/ 2 A = t , c,b , and R conv,o = ( 2 r2 h w ) . Using the IHT Performance Calculation, Extended Surface Model for the Straight Fin Array, the following results were obtained. For the base case, q = 3857 W/m, where R t,o(c) = 0.101 mK/W,
-5 R cond = 7.25 10 mK/W and R conv,o = 0.00265 mK/W. If the contact resistance is eliminated ( R = 0), q T = 3922 W/m, where R = 0.0993 mK/W. If the number of fins is increased to N = 8, t,c t,o q = 5799 W/m, with R t,o(c) = 0.063 mK/W. If the material is changed to stainless steel, q = 3591 W/m, with R t,o(c) = 0.107 mK/W and R cond = 0.00145 mK/W. COMMENTS: The small reduction in q T associated with use of stainless steel is perhaps surprising, in view of the large reduction in k. However, because h g is small, the reduction in k does not significantly reduce the fin efficiency ( f changes from 0.994 to 0.891). Hence, the heat rate remains large. The influence of k would become more pronounced with increasing h g . PROBLEM 3.152

COMMENTS: The foregoing design provides for comparable heat transfer to the air and water streams. This result is a consequence of the nearly equivalent thermal resistances associated with heat transfer -1 from the inner and outer surfaces. Specifically, R conv,i = ( h i 2 ri ) = 0.00318 mK/W is slightly smaller than R t,o(c) = 0.00411 mK/W, in which case q ( ri ) is slightly larger than q ( ro ) , while Ts,i is slightly smaller than Ts,o .

Evaluate the constants - C1, C2, C3 and C4 - by substitution of the boundary conditions: x = 0: ( 0,y) = ( C1 + C 2 0 )( C3 + C4 y ) = 0 C1 = 0 y =0: ( x,0) = ( 0 + C2 X)( C3 + C4 0 ) = 0 C3 = 0 x = L: ( L,0) = ( 0 + C2 L)( 0 + C4 y ) = 0 C2 = 0 y = W: ( x,W ) = ( 0 + 0 x )( 0 + C4 W ) = 1 01 (4) The last boundary condition leads to an impossibility (0 1). We therefore conclude that a value of zero will not result in a form of the temperature distribution which will satisfy the boundary 2 conditions. Consider now the situation when < 0. The solutions to Eqs. (1) and (2) will be X = C5e- x + C6e + x , Y = C7cos y + C8sin y ( x,y ) = C5 e- x + C6 e + x [ C7 cos y + C8 sin y ] .

A calculation of this resistance may be based on results presented in Chapter 8.

Substituting numerical values, find 4 0.1m S = 2 0.1m/l n 0.005m = 0.143m. The temperature of the heater is then T1 = 25C + 50 W/(5 W/mK 0.143m) = 94.9C. < COMMENTS: (1) Note that the heater has L >> D, which is a requirement of the shape factor expression.

PROPERTIES: Table A-3, Concrete, stone mix (300K): k = 1.4 W/mK. ANALYSIS: (a) If we relax the restriction that z >> D/2, the embedded tube-slab system corresponds to the fifth case of Table 4.1. Hence, S= 2 L ln (8z/ D ) where L is the length of the system normal to the page, z is the half-thickness of the slab and D is the diameter of the tube. Substituting numerical values, find S = 2 L/l n( 8 50mm/ 50mm ) = 6.72L.
Hence, the heat rate per unit length is q = q S W = k ( T1 - T2 ) = 6.72 1.4 ( 85 - 20 )o C = 612 W. L L m K (b) To find the shape factor using the flux plot method, first identify the symmetrical section bounded by the symmetry adiabats formed by the horizontal and vertical center lines. Selecting four temperature increments (N = 4), the flux plot can then be constructed. From Eq. 4.26, the shape factor of the symmetrical section is So = ML/N = 6L/4 = 1.5L.
For the tube-slab system, it follows that S = 4So = 6.0L, which compares favorably with the result obtained from the shape factor relation.

SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state conditions, (2) Constant properties, (3) Thermal resistances of copper tube wall and outer shell wall are negligible, (4) Two-dimensional conduction in insulation. ANALYSIS: The heat loss per unit length written in terms of the shape factor S is q = k ( S/ l )(T1 - T2 ) and from Table 4.1 for this geometry, D2 + d 2 - 4z 2 S = 2 /cosh-1 . l 2Dd Substituting numerical values, all dimensions in mm, 2 2 2 S -1 120 + 30 - 4 ( 20 ) = 2 /cosh-1 1.903 = 4.991. = 2 /cosh ( ) l 2 120 30 Hence, the heat loss is q = 0.05W/m K 4.991( 85 - 35 ) C = 12.5 W/m.

SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state, (2) Uniform convection coefficient over entire outer surface of container. ANALYSIS: From the thermal circuit, the heat loss is q= Ts,i - T R cond(2D) + R conv where Rconv = 1/hAs,o = 1/6(hW2) = 1/6[5 W/m2K(5 m)2] = 0.00133 K/W. From Eq. (4.27), the twodimensional conduction resistance is R cond(2D) = 1 Sk where the shape factor S must include the effects of conduction through the 8 corners, 12 edges and 6 plane walls. Hence, using the relations for Cases 8 and 9 of Table 4.1, S = 8 (0.15 L ) + 12 0.54 ( W - 2L ) + 6 As,i L
where As,i = (W - 2L)2. Hence, S = 8 (0.15 0.35 ) + 12 0.54 ( 4.30 ) + 6 (52.83) m S = ( 0.42 + 27.86 + 316.98 ) m = 345.26m

ANALYSIS: (a) The heat rate per unit thickness from each channel can be determined from the following thermal circuit representing the quarter section shown. The value for the shape factor is S = 1.06 as determined from the flux plot shown on the next page. Hence, the heat rate is qi = 4 ( Ti - T ) / Rtot (1) R tot = [1/1000 W/m 2 K ( 0.015m/4 ) + 1/20 W/m K 1.06 + 2.0 10-4 m2 K/W ( 0.060m/2 ) + 0.0075m/75 W/m K ( 0.060m/2) + 1/200 W/m2 K ( 0.060m/2 )] R tot = [0.085 + 0.047 + 0.0067 + 0.0033 + 0.1667 ] m K/W R tot = 0.309 m K/W qi = 4 (150 - 25) K/0.309 m K/W = 1.62 kW/m. <

The dominant resistance is that due to the ambient air convection process which is inversely related to the spacing Lo. Hence, from Eq.

What effect does Lo have on Assumptions (2) and (3)? If the lower surface were insulated, the heat rate would be decreased nearly by half. This follows again from the fact that the overall resistance is dominated by the surface convection process. The temperature difference, Ts - T, would only increase slightly. PROBLEM 4.25

When is it advantageous to use smaller diameter wire? SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state conditions, (2) Thermocouple wire behaves as a fin with constant heat transfer coefficient, (3) Copper block has uniform temperature, except in the vicinity of the junction. PROPERTIES: Table A-1, Copper (pure, 400 K), kb = 393 W/mK; Constantan (350 K), kt 25 W/mK. ANALYSIS: The thermocouple wire behaves as a long fin permitting heat to flow from the surface thereby depressing the sensing junction temperature below that of the block To. In the block, heat flows into the circular region of the wire-block interface; the thermal resistance to heat flow within the block is approximated as a disk of diameter D on a semi-infinite medium (kb, To). The thermocouple-block combination can be represented by a thermal circuit as shown above. The thermal resistance of the fin follows from the heat rate expression for an infinite fin, Rfin = (hPktAc)-1/2. From Table 4.1, the shape factor for the disk-on-a-semi-infinite medium is given as S = 2D and hence Rblock = 1/kbS = 1/2kbD.

As such, only changes to the wall thickness will have an appreciable effect on the inside air temperature relative to the outside ambient air conditions. We don't want to make the igloo walls thinner and thereby allow the air temperature to dip below freezing for the prescribed environmental conditions.

(2) In calculating the fin efficiency, f, using the IHT Model it is not necessary to know the base temperature as f depends only upon geometric parameters, thermal conductivity and the convection coefficient.

SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady state, (2) Approximately uniform channel inner and outer surface temperatures, (3) Two-dimensional conduction through channel wall (negligible end-wall effects), (4) Constant thermal conductivity. ANALYSIS: The total heat rate is determined by the two-dimensional conduction resistance of the channel wall, q = (T2 T1)/Rt,cond(2D), with the resistance determined by using Eq. 4.27 with Case 11 of Table 4.1. For W/w = 1.6 > 1.4 R t,cond(2D) = 0.930 ln ( W / w ) - 0.050 2 L k = 0.387 2 ( 0.160m ) 240 W / m K = 0.00160 K / W The heat rate per chip is then qc = (50 - 20 ) C = 156.3 W T2 - T1 = N R t,cond ( 2D ) 120 ( 0.0016 K / W ) < and, with qc = (Tc T2)/Rt,c, the chip temperature is Tc = T2 + R t,c qc = 50C + ( 0.2 K / W )156.3 W = 81.3C < COMMENTS: (1) By acting to spread heat flow lines away from a chip, the channel wall provides an excellent heat sink for dissipating heat generated by the chip. However, recognize that, in practice, there will be temperature variations on the inner and outer surfaces of the channel, and if the prescribed values of T1 and T2 represent minimum and maximum inner and outer surface temperatures, respectively, the rate is overestimated by the foregoing analysis. (2) The shape factor may also be determined by combining the expression for a plane wall with the result of Case 8 (Table 4.1).

A slightly conservative value (upper estimate) of m is therefore obtained in part (b). PROBLEM 4.33

However, due to an attendant increase in A , there is significant benefit to t increasing N for fixed t (no change in f ) and additional benefit in concurrently increasing N while decreasing t. In this case the effect of increasing A exceeds that of decreasing f . The same is t true for increasing L, although there is an upper limit at which diminishing returns would be reached. The upper limit to L could also be influenced by manufacturing constraints. COMMENTS: Without the sleeve, the heat rate would be q = Dh ( Ts - T ) = 7850 W / m, which is well below that achieved by using the increased surface area afforded by the sleeve. PROBLEM 4.34

Hence, the heat rate is increased almost in proportion to the additional surface area afforded by the substrate. An increase in the spacing between chips (Sh) would increase q correspondingly. (2) In the limit A r 0, R t (sp ) reduces to 2 1/ 2 k sub D h for a circular heat source and 4k sub L h for a square source. PROBLEM 4.35

In finite-difference form, the heat rate from the fluid to the bar is q conv = h ( x 2 )( T - Ts ) + hx ( T - T1 ) + h ( x 2 )( T - Ts ) q conv = hx ( T - Ts ) + hx ( T - T1 ) = hx ( T - Ts ) + ( T - T1 ) 2 q conv = 100 W m K 0.030 m (100 - 50 ) + (100 - 81.7 ) C = 205 W m . < (b) Using the Finite-Difference Equations option from the Tools portion of the IHT menu, the following two-dimensional temperature field was computed for the grid shown in schematic (b), where x and y are in mm and the temperatures are in C. y\x 0 15 30 45 60 75 90 0 50 50 50 50 50 50 50 15 80.33 63.58 56.27 52.91 51.32 50.51 50 30 85.16 67.73 58.58 54.07 51.86 50.72 50 45 80.33 63.58 56.27 52.91 51.32 50.51 50 60 50 50 50 50 50 50 50 The improved prediction of the temperature field has a significant influence on the heat rate, where, accounting for the symmetrical conditions, q = 2h ( x 2 )( T - Ts ) + 2h ( x )( T - T1 ) + h ( x )( T - T2 ) q = h ( x ) ( T - Ts ) + 2 ( T - T1 ) + ( T - T2 ) q = 100 W m 2 K ( 0.015 m ) 50 + 2 (19.67 ) + 14.84 C = 156.3 W m < Additional improvements in accuracy could be obtained by reducing the grid spacing to 5 mm, although the requisite number of finite-difference equations would increase from 12 to 108, significantly increasing problem set-up time. An increase in h would increase temperatures everywhere within the bar, particularly at the heated surface, as well as the rate of heat transfer by convection to the surface. COMMENTS: (1) Using the matrix-inversion method, the exact solution to the system of equations (1, 2, 3) of part (a) is T1 = 81.70C, T2 = 58.44C, and T3 = 52.12C. The fact that only 4 iterations were required to obtain agreement within 0.01C is due to the close initial guesses. (2) Note that the rate of heat transfer by convection to the top surface of the rod must balance the rate of heat transfer by conduction to the sides and bottom of the rod. NOTE TO INSTRUCTOR: Although the problem statement calls for calculations with x = y = 5 mm and for plotting associated isotherms, the instructional value and benefit-to-effort ratio are small. Hence, it is recommended that this portion of the problem not be assigned. PROBLEM 4.53

Since all nodes are interior ones, the finite-difference equations may be obtained from Eq. 4.39 written in the form Ti = 1 2 Tneighbors + 1 4 ( q ( xy1) k ) . With q ( xy ) 4k = 62.5 K, the system of finite-difference equations is T1 = 0.25 ( Ts + T2 + T4 + Ts ) + 15.625 T2 = 0.25 ( Ts + T3 + T5 + T1 ) + 15.625 T3 = 0.25 ( Ts + T2 + T6 + T2 ) + 15.625 T4 = 0.25 ( T1 + T5 + T1 + Ts ) + 15.625 T5 = 0.25 ( T2 + T6 + T2 + T4 ) + 15.625 T6 = 0.25 ( T3 + T5 + T3 + T5 ) + 15.625

ANALYSIS: Taking advantage of symmetry, the nodal network using the suggested 75mm grid spacing is shown above. To obtain the heat rate, we first need to determine the unknown temperatures T1, T2, T3 and T4. Recognizing that these nodes may be treated as interior nodes, the nodal equations from Eq. 4.33 are (T2 + 25 + T2 + 350) - 4T1 = 0 (T1 + 25 + T3 + 350) - 4T2 = 0 (T2 + 25 + T4 + 350) - 4T3 = 0 (T3 + 25 + 25 + T3) - 4T4 = 0. The Gauss-Seidel iteration method is convenient for this system of equations and following the procedures of Section 4.5.2, they are rewritten as,
k k-1 T1 = 0.50 T2 + 93.75 k k k-1 T2 = 0.25 T1 + 0.25 T3 + 93.75 k k k-1 T3 = 0.25 T2 + 0.25 T4 + 93.75 k k T4 = 0.50 T3 + 12.5.

Iteration is continued until the maximum temperature difference is less than 0.2C, i.e., < 0.2C. Note that if the system of equations were organized in matrix form, Eq. 4.52, diagonal dominance would exist.

SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state conditions, (2) Two-dimensional conduction, (3) No internal volumetric generation, (4) Constant properties. PROPERTIES: Concrete (given): k = 1.4 W/mK. ANALYSIS: Taking advantage of symmetry, the nodal network, using the suggested grid spacing x = 2y = 37.50 mm y = 0.125L = 18.75 mm where L = 150 mm, is shown in the sketch. To evaluate the heat rate, we need the temperatures T1, T2, T3, T4, and T5. All the nodes may be treated as interior nodes ( considering symmetry for those nodes on insulated boundaries), Eq. 4.33. Use matrix notation, Eq. 4.52, [A][T] = [C], and perform the inversion. The heat rate per unit length from the prescribed section of the duct follows from an energy balance on the nodes at the top isothermal surface. q = q + q2 + q3 + q4 + q5 1 T1 - Ts T -T T -T T -T T -T q = k ( x/2 ) + k x 2 s + k x 3 s + k x 4 s + k ( x/2 ) 5 s y y y y y = k ( T1 - Ts ) + 2 ( T2 - Ts ) + 2 ( T3 - Ts ) + 2 ( T4 - Ts ) + ( T5 - Ts ) q q = 1.4 W/m K ( 41.70 - 30 ) + 2 ( 44.26 - 30 ) + 2 ( 53.92 - 30 ) + 2 ( 54.89 - 30 ) + ( 54.98 - 30 ) q = 228 W/m.
Since the section analyzed represents one-half of the region about an air duct, the heat loss per unit length for each duct is, qduct = 2xq = 456 W/m.

With reductions in the convection coefficient from h to h = 1000, 200 and 5 W/m2K, the corresponding increase in the thermal resistance reduces the heat rate to values of 6.03, 3.28 and 0.14 kW/m, respectively. With decreasing h, there is an overall increase in nodal temperatures, as, for example, from 191C to 199.8C for T2 and from 20C to 196.9C for T55.

Recognizing that x = y and substituting numerical values, find q = 20 W 1 ( 57.5 - 25) + ( 52.9 - 25 ) + 2 ( 51.9 - 25) K m K q = 1477 W/m. < COMMENTS: (1) Recognize that, while the temperature distribution may have been determined to a reasonable approximation, the uncertainty in the heat rate could be substantial. This follows since the heat rate is based upon a gradient and hence on temperature differences. (2) Note that the initial guesses (k = 0) for the iteration are within 5C of the final distribution. The geometry is simple enough that the guess can be very close. In some instances, a flux plot may be helpful and save labor in the calculation. (3) In writing the FDEs, the iteration index (superscript k) was not included to simplify expression of the equations. However, the most recent value of Tm,n is always used in the computations. Note that this system of FDEs is diagonally dominant and no rearrangement is required. PROBLEM 4.64

KNOWN: Straight fin of uniform cross section with prescribed thermal conditions and geometry; tip condition allows for convection. FIND: (a) Calculate the fin heat rate, q , and tip temperature, TL , assuming one-dimensional heat f transfer in the fin; calculate the Biot number to determine whether the one-dimensional assumption is valid, (b) Using the finite-element software FEHT, perform a two-dimensional analysis to determine the fin heat rate and the tip temperature; display the isotherms; describe the temperature field and the heat flow pattern inferred from the display, and (c) Validate your FEHT code against the 1-D analytical solution for a fin using a thermal conductivity of 50 and 500 W/mK. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state conduction with constant properties, (2) Negligible radiation exchange, (3) Uniform convection coefficient. ANALYSIS: (a) Assuming one-dimensional conduction, q and TL can be determined using Eqs. L 3.72 and 3.70, respectively, from Table 3.4, Case A. Alternatively, use the IHT Model | Extended Surfaces | Temperature Distribution and Heat Rate | Straight Fin | Rectangular. These results are tabulated below and labeled as "1-D." The Biot number for the fin is h t/2 500 W / m 2 K 0.020 m / 2 Bi = ( k )= ( 5 W / mK ) =1 (b, c) The fin can be drawn as a two-dimensional outline in FEHT with convection boundary conditions on the exposed surfaces, and with a uniform temperature on the base. Using a fine mesh (at least 1280 elements), solve for the temperature distribution and use the View | Temperature Contours command to view the isotherms and the Heat Flow command to determine the heat rate into the fin base. The results of the analysis are summarized in the table below. k (W/mK) 5 50 500 Bi 1 0.1 0.01 Tip temperature, TL (C) 1-D 2-D 100 100 100.3 100 123.8 124 Fin heat rate, q (W/m) f 1-D 1010 3194 9812 2-D 805 2990 9563 Difference* (%) 20 6.4 2.5 * Difference = q ,1D - q ,2D 100 / q ,1D f f f
COMMENTS: (1) From part (a), since Bi = 1 > 0.1, the internal conduction resistance is not negligible. Therefore significant transverse temperature gradients exist, and the one-dimensional conduction assumption in the fin is a poor one. Continued ..... ( ) PROBLEM 4.66 (Cont.)
(2) From the table, with k = 5 W/mK (Bi = 1), the 2-D fin heat rate obtained from the FEA analysis is 20% lower than that for the 1-D analytical analysis. This is as expected since the 2-D model accounts for transverse thermal resistance to heat flow. Note, however, that analyses predict the same tip temperature, a consequence of the fin approximating an infinitely long fin (mL = 20.2 >> 2.56; see Ex. 3.8 Comments). (3) For the k = 5 W/mK case, the FEHT isotherms show considerable curvature in the region near the fin base. For example, at x = 10 and 20 mm, the difference between the centerline and surface temperatures are 15 and 7C. (4) From the table, with increasing thermal conductivity, note that Bi decreases, and the onedimensional heat transfer assumption becomes more appropriate. The difference for the case when k = 500 W/mK is mostly due to the approximate manner in which the heat rate is calculated in the FEA software. PROBLEM 4.67

SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state, two dimensional conduction, (2) Constant properties. ANALYSIS: (a) The symmetrical section shown in the schematic is drawn in FEHT with the specified boundary conditions and material property. The View | Temperature Contours command is used to represent ten isotherms (isopotentials) that have minimum and maximum values of 53.9C and 85.9C, respectively. Because of the symmetry boundary condition, the isotherms are normal to the center-plane indicating an adiabatic surface. Note that the temperature change along the upper surface of the bar is substantial ( 40C), whereas the lower half of the bar has less than a 3C change. That is, the lower half of the bar is largely unaffected by the heat transfer conditions at the upper surface. (b, c) Using the View | Heat Flows command considering the upper surface boundary with selected convection coefficients, the heat rates into the bar from the air stream were calculated. h W / m2 K 100 200 300 q ( W / m ) ( ) 128 175 206 Increasing the convection coefficient by factors of 2 and 3, increases the heat rate by 37% and 61%, respectively. The heat rate from the bar to the air stream is controlled by the thermal resistances of the bar (conduction) and the convection process. Since the conduction resistance is significant, we should not expect the heat rate to change proportionally to the change in convection resistance. PROBLEM 4.68

After hitting Run, Check and then Calculate, use the View/Temperature Contours and select the 10isopotential option to display the isotherms as shown in an annotated copy of the FEHT screen below. The isotherms are normal to the symmetrical lines as expected since those surfaces are adiabatic. The isotherms, especially near the center, have an elliptical shape. Along the x = 0 axis and the y = 10 mm axis, the temperature gradient is nearly linear. The hottest point is of course the center for which the temperature is (T(0, 10 mm) = 401.3 K. < The temperature of this point can be read using the View/Temperatures or View|Tabular Output command. (b) To determine the required generation rate so that T(0, 10 mm) = 600 K, it is necessary to re-run the model with several guessed values of q . After a few trials, find q = 1.48 108 W / m3 < PROBLEM 4.69 KNOWN: Symmetrical section of a flow channel with prescribed values of q and k, as well as the surface convection conditions.

SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state, two-dimensional conduction, (2) Constant properties. ANALYSIS: (a) The symmetrical section shown in the schematic is drawn in FEHT with the specified boundary conditions, material property and generation. The View | Temperature Contours command is used to represent ten isotherms (isopotentials) that have minimum and maximum values of 82.1C and 125.2C. The hottest region of the section is the upper vertical leg (left-hand corner). The coolest region is in the lower horizontal leg at the far right-hand boundary. The maximum and minimum section temperatures (125C and 77C), respectively, are higher than either adjoining fluid. Remembering that heat flow lines are normal to the isotherms, heat flows from the hottest corner directly to the inner fluid and downward into the lower leg and then flows out surface A and the lower portion of surface B.

KNOWN: Hot-film flux gage for determining the convection coefficient of an adjoining fluid stream by measuring the dissipated electric power, Pe , and the average surface temperature, Ts,f. FIND: Using the finite-element method of FEHT, determine the fraction of the power dissipation that is conducted into the quartz substrate considering three cases corresponding to convection coefficients 2 of 500, 1000 and 2000 W/m K. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state, two-dimensional conduction, (2) Constant substrate properties, (3) Uniform convection coefficient over the hot-film and substrate surfaces, (4) Uniform power dissipation over hot film. ANALYSIS: The symmetrical section shown in the schematic above (right) is drawn into FEHT specifying the substrate material property. On the upper surface, a convection boundary condition (T,h) is specified over the full width W/2. Additionally, an applied uniform flux Pe , W / m 2 ( ) boundary condition is specified for the hot-film region (w/2). The remaining surfaces of the twodimensional system are specified as adiabatic. In the schematic below, the electrical power dissipation Pe (W/m) in the hot film is transferred by convection from the film surface, q cv,f , and from the adjacent substrate surface, q . cv,s The analysis evaluates the fraction, F, of the dissipated electrical power that is conducted into the substrate and convected to the fluid stream, F = q / Pe = 1 - q cv,s cv,f / Pe where Pe = Pe ( w / 2 ) = 5000 W / m 2 ( 0.002 m ) = 10 W / m.

The purpose in performing the present analysis is to estimate a correction ( ) factor to account for heat transfer to the substrate. (2) As anticipated, the fraction of the dissipated electrical power conducted into the substrate, F, decreases with increasing convection coefficient. For the case of the largest convection coefficient, F amounts to 25%, making it necessary to develop a reliable, accurate heat transfer model to estimate the applied correction. Further, this condition limits the usefulness of this gage design to flows with high convection coefficients. (3) A reduction in F, and hence the effect of an applied correction, could be achieved with a substrate material having a lower thermal conductivity than quartz. However, quartz is a common substrate material for fabrication of thin-film heat-flux gages and thermocouples. By what other means could you reduce F? (4) In addition to the tutorial example in the FEHT User's Manual, the solved models for Examples 4.3 and 4.4 are useful for developing skills helpful in solving this problem. PROBLEM 4.71

Although q increases with increasing h, the effect of changes in h becomes less pronounced.

Agreement with the results of part (a) is excellent, except in proximity to the heating element, where T15 = 66.6C for the fine grid exceeds T7 = 63.9C for the coarse grid by 2.7C. For h = 10 W/m2K, the maximum temperature in the ceramic corresponds to T15 = 254C, and the heater could still be operated at the prescribed power. With h = 10 W/m2K, the critical temperature of T15 = 400C would be reached with a heater power of approximately 82 W/m. COMMENTS: (1) The method used to obtain the rational estimates for Ti (k = 0) in part (a) is as follows. Assume 25 W/m is transferred by convection uniformly over the surface; find Tsurf 50C. Set T2 = 50C and recognize that T1 and T3 will be higher and lower, respectively. Assume 25 W/m is conducted uniformly to the outer nodes; find T5 - T2 4C. For the remaining nodes, use intuition to guess reasonable values. (2) In selecting grid size (and whether x = y), one should consider the region of largest temperature gradients. NOTE TO INSTRUCTOR: Although the problem statement calls for calculations with x = y = 1 mm, the instructional value and benefit-to-effort ratio are small. Hence, consideration of this grid size is not recommended. PROBLEM 4.76
KNOWN: Silicon chip mounted in a dielectric substrate. One surface of system is convectively cooled while the remaining surfaces are well insulated. FIND: Whether maximum temperature in chip will exceed 85C. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state conditions, (2) Two-dimensional conduction, (3) Negligible contact resistance between chip and substrate, (4) Upper surface experiences uniform convection coefficient, (5) Other surfaces are perfectly insulated. ANALYSIS: Performing an energy balance on the chip assuming it is perfectly insulated from the substrate, the maximum temperature occurring at the interface with the dielectric substrate will be, according to Eqs. 3.43 and 3.46,
Tmax =
2 & q ( H/4 ) + & q ( H/4 ) h 2k c + T = 10 W/m 7 3 ( 0.003 m ) 2 2 50 W/m K + 10 W/m 7 3 ( 0.003 m)
2 500 W/m K + 20 C = 80.9 C. o o Since Tmax < 85C for the assumed situation, for the actual two-dimensional situation with the conducting dielectric substrate, the maximum temperature should be less than 80C. Using the suggested grid spacing of 3 mm, construct the nodal network and write the finite-difference equation for each of the nodes taking advantage of symmetry of the system. Note that we have chosen to not locate nodes on the system surfaces for two reasons: (1) fewer total number of nodes, 20 vs. 25, and (2) Node 5 corresponds to center of chip which is likely the point of maximum temperature.

For this situation, the temperature difference at the web-flange interface across the width of the web was nearly 40C.

SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state, two-dimensional conduction with constant properties, and (2) Lower surface of platen is adiabatic. ANALYSIS: As shown in the schematic above for a symmetrical section of the platen-flow channel arrangement, the temperature uniformity requirement will be met when T1 T2 = 5C. The maximum temperature, T1, will occur directly over the flow channel centerline, while the minimum surface temperature, T2, will occur at the mid-span between channel centerlines. We chose to use FEHT to obtain the temperature distribution and heat rate for guessed values of the channel centerline spacing, W. The following method of solution was used: (1) Make an initial guess value for W; try W = 100 mm, (2) Draw an outline of the symmetrical section, and assign properties and boundary conditions, (3) Make a copy of this file so that in your second trial, you can use the Draw | Move Node option to modify the section width, W/2, larger or smaller, (4) Draw element lines within the outline to create triangular elements, (5) Use the Draw | Reduce Mesh command to generate a suitably fine mesh, then solve for the temperature distribution, (6) Use the View | Temperatures command to determine the temperatures T1 and T2, (7) If, T1 T2 5C, use the View | Heat Flows command to find the heat rate, otherwise, change the width of the section outline and repeat the analysis. The results of our three trials are tabulated below.

(2) An alternative numerical method of solution would be to create a nodal network, generate the finite-difference equations and solve for the temperature distribution and the heat rate. The FDEs should allow for a non-square grid, x y, so that different values for W/2 can be accommodated by changing the value of x. Even using the IHT tool for building FDEs (Tools | Finite-Difference Equations | Steady-State) this method of solution is very labor intensive because of the large number of nodes required for obtaining good estimates.

ANALYSIS: Using FEHT, the symmetrical section is represented in the workspace as two connected regions, chip and substrate. Draw first the chip outline; Specify the material and generation parameters. Now, Draw the outline of the substrate, connecting the nodes of the interfacing surfaces; Specify the material parameters for this region. Finally, Assign the Boundary Conditions: zero heat flux for the symmetry and insulated surfaces, and convection for the upper surface.

Use the Draw|Reduce Mesh command and Run the model. (a) Use the View|Temperature command to see the nodal temperatures through out the system. As expected, the hottest location is on the centerline of the chip at the bottom surface.

During the subsequent surface cooling, the maximum temperature is at the midplane. (2) The interior of the meat is heated by conduction from the hotter surfaces during radiant heating, and the lowest temperature is at the midplane.

On T-x coordinates: (1) initial, uniform temperature, (2) steady-state conditions when t , (3) distribution at to just before plate is covered with insulation, (4) gradients are always zero (symmetry), and (5) when t > to (dashed lines) gradients approach zero everywhere. (c) If Bi << 1, plate is space-wise isothermal (no gradients). On T-x coordinates, the temperature distributions are flat; on T-t coordinates, T(L,t) = T(0,t).

Accordingly, the largest temperature difference is between these two components, and it achieves a maximum value of 55C at t ( maximum stress ) 40s < (b) With the 4-fold increase in h associated with use of a dielectric liquid to heat the components, the time constants are each reduced by a factor of 4, and the times required to achieve 99% of the maximum temperature rise are Chip: t = 29.5s, Solder: t = 11.0s, Substrate: t = 708s < The time savings is approximately 75%. COMMENTS: The foregoing analysis provides only a first, albeit useful, approximation to the heating problem. Several of the assumptions are highly approximate, particularly that of a uniform convection coefficient. The coefficient will vary between components, as well as on the surfaces of the components. Also, because the solder balls are flattened, there will be a reduction in surface area exposed to the fluid for each component, as well as heat transfer between components, which reduces differences between time constants for the components.

The final condition corresponds to the steady-state temperature, T (x,) = T. For the intermediate times, the gradient is zero at the insulated boundary (x = 0, the pipe exterior). As expected, the temperature at x = 0 will be less than at the boundary experiencing the convection process with the hot oil, x = L. Note, however, that the difference is not very significant. The gradient at the inner wall, x = L, decreases with increasing time. (d) The temperature history T(x,t) for the locations at the inner and outer pipe surfaces are shown in the graph below. Note that the temperature difference between the two locations is greatest at the start of the transient process and decreases with increasing time. After a 16 min. duration, the pipe temperature is almost uniform, but yet 3 or 4C from the steady-state condition.

With Bi = hL/k = 100 W/m K 0.15m/1.5 W/mK = 10 and Fo > 0.2, the one-term approximation, Eq. 5.41 may be used to compute the desired time, where o = (To - T ) / (Ti - T ) = 0.215.

SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) One-dimensional conduction in plate, (2) Symmetric heating on both sides, (3) Constant properties, (4) Negligible radiation from gases, (5) Fo > 0.2. ANALYSIS: The smallest temperature exists at the midplane and, with Bi = hL/k = 500 W/m K 0.050m/45 W/mK = 0.556 and Fo > 0.2, may be determined from the one-term approximation of Eq. 5.41.

KNOWN: Plate of thickness 2L = 25 mm at a uniform temperature of 600C is removed from a hot pressing operation. Case 1, cooled on both sides; case 2, cooled on one side only. FIND: (a) Calculate and plot on one graph the temperature histories for cases 1 and 2 for a 500second cooling period; use the IHT software; Compare times required for the maximum temperature in the plate to reach 100C; and (b) For both cases, calculate and plot on one graph, the variation with time of the maximum temperature difference in the plate; Comment on the relative magnitudes of the temperature gradients within the plate as a function of time. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) One-dimensional conduction in the plate, (2) Constant properties, and (3) For case 2, with cooling on one side only, the other side is adiabatic. PROPERTIES: Plate (given): = 3000 kg/m , c = 750 J/kgK, k = 15 W/mK. ANALYSIS: (a) From IHT, call up Plane Wall, Transient Conduction from the Models menu. For case 1, the plate thickness is 25 mm; for case 2, the plate thickness is 50 mm. The plate center (x = 0) temperature histories are shown in the graph below.

(2) From the maximum temperature-difference graph, as expected, cooling from one side creates a larger maximum temperature difference during the cooling process. The effect could cause microstructure differences, which could adversely affect the mechanical properties within the plate. PROBLEM 5.39
KNOWN: Properties and thickness L of ceramic coating on rocket nozzle wall. Convection conditions. Initial temperature and maximum allowable wall temperature. FIND: (a) Maximum allowable engine operating time, tmax, for L = 10 mm, (b) Coating inner and outer surface temperature histories for L = 10 and 40 mm. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) One-dimensional conduction in a plane wall, (2) Constant properties, (3) Negligible thermal capacitance of metal wall and heat loss through back surface, (4) Negligible contact resistance at wall/ceramic interface, (5) Negligible radiation. ANALYSIS: (a) Subject to assumptions (3) and (4), the maximum wall temperature corresponds to the ceramic temperature at x = 0. Hence, for the ceramic, we wish to determine the time tmax at which T(0,t) = To(t) = 1500 K. With Bi = hL/k = 5000 W/m2K(0.01 m)/10 W/mK = 5, the lumped capacitance method cannot be used. Assuming Fo > 0.2, obtaining 1 = 1.3138 and C1 = 1.2402 from Table 5.1, and * evaluating o = ( To - T ) ( Ti - T ) = 0.4, Equation 5.41 yields Fo = - * ln o C1 2 1 ( ) = - ln (0.4 1.2402) = 0.656

PROBLEM 5.39 (Cont.)
The increase in the inner (x = 0) surface temperature lags that of the outer surface, but within t 45s both temperatures are within a few degrees of the gas temperature for L = 0.01 m. For L = 0.04 m, the increased thermal capacitance of the ceramic slows the approach to steady-state conditions. The thermal response of the inner surface significantly lags that of the outer surface, and it is not until t 137s that the inner surface reaches 1500 K. At this time there is still a significant temperature difference across the ceramic, with T(L,tmax) = 2240 K. COMMENTS: The allowable engine operating time increases with increasing thermal capacitance of the ceramic and hence with increasing L. PROBLEM 5.40 KNOWN: Initial temperature, thickness and thermal diffusivity of glass plate. Prescribed surface temperature.

KNOWN: Thickness and properties of rubber tire. Convection heating conditions. Initial and final midplane temperature. FIND: (a) Time to reach final midplane temperature. (b) Effect of accelerated heating. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) One-dimensional conduction in a plane wall, (2) Constant properties, (3) Negligible radiation. ANALYSIS: (a) With Bi = hL/k = 200 W/m2K(0.01 m)/0.14 W/mK = 14.3, the lumped capacitance method is clearly inappropriate. Assuming Fo > 0.2, Eq.

For h = 200 W/m2K, the Biot number is already quite large (Bi = 14.3), and limits to the heating rate are principally due to conduction in the rubber and not to convection at the surface. Any increase in h only serves to reduce what is already a small component of the total thermal resistance. COMMENTS: The heating rate could be accelerated by increasing the steam temperature, but an upper limit would be associated with avoiding thermal damage to the rubber.

Note that, for both values of h, the temperature difference [T(0,t) - T(ro,t)] decreases with increasing t. Although the surface heat flux for h = 200 W/m2K is initially larger than that for h = 75 W/m2K, the more rapid decline in T(ro,t) causes it to become smaller at t 30s. COMMENTS: 1. There is considerable uncertainty associated with reading Q/Qo from the Groeber chart, Fig. D.9, and it would be better to use the one-term approximation solutions of Section 5.6.2.

The cooling rate increases with increasing h, particularly from 100 to 400 W/m2K. The temperature difference between the center and surface decreases with increasing t and, during the early stages of solidification, with decreasing h. COMMENTS: Temperature gradients in the glass are largest during the early stages of solidification and increase with increasing h. Since thermal stresses increase with increasing temperature gradients, the propensity to induce defects due to crack formation in the glass increases with increasing h. Hence, there is a value of h above which product quality would suffer and the process should not be operated. PROBLEM 5.69

ANALYSIS: The IHT model represents the series solution for the sphere providing the temperatures evaluated at (r,t). A selected portion of the IHT code used to obtain results is shown in the Comments.

PROPERTIES: Table A-1, Copper (300K): = 8933 kg/m , c = 385 J/kgK, k = 401 W/mK; Table A-3, Concrete, stone mix (300K): = 2300 kg/m , c = 880 J/kgK, k = 1.4 W/mK. ANALYSIS: Considering the block as a semi-infinite solid, the heat transfer situation corresponds to a sudden change in surface temperature, Case 1, Figure 5.7. The sensation of coolness is related to the heat flow from the hand or finger to the block. From Eq. 5.58, the surface heat flux is q ( t ) = k ( Ts - Ti ) / ( t ) s or q ( t ) ~ ( k c ) s

FIND: (a) Time required to lift a tile after being heated by the tile-iron and whether adhesive temperature exceeds 120C, (2) How much energy has been removed from the tile-iron during the time it has taken to lift the tile. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Tile and subflooring have same thermophysical properties, (2) Thickness of adhesive is negligible compared to that of tile, (3) Tile-subflooring behaves as semi-infinite solid experiencing one-dimensional transient conduction.

ANALYSIS: (a) The tile-subflooring can be approximated as a semi-infinite solid, initially at a uniform temperature Ti = 25C, experiencing a sudden change in surface temperature Ts = T(0,t) = 150C. This corresponds to Case 1, Figure 5.7. The time required to heat the adhesive (xo = 4 mm) to 50C follows from Eq. 5.57 T ( x o , t o ) - Ts Ti - Ts xo = erf 2 ( t )1/ 2 o 50 - 150 0.004 m = erf 25 - 150 2 1.00 10-7 m 2 s t 1/ 2 o - 0.80 = erf 6.325t o 1/ 2 to = 48.7s = 0.81 min using error function values from Table B.2.

Hence, o at x = 0, T ( 0,30 min ) = 25C + 284.5C = 309.5C < 325C
At x = 0.25m, - x 2 / 4 t = -12.54, q x / k = 1, 786K, and x / 2 ( t )1/ 2 = 3.54. Hence, o < ( ) T ( 0.25m, 30 min ) = 25C + 284.5C 3.58 10-6 - 1786C ( ~ 0 ) 25C

ANALYSIS: At the instant that contact is made, the plates behave as semi-infinite slabs and, since the (kc) product is the same for the two plates, Equation 5.63 yields a surface temperature of Ts = 350K. The interface will remain at this temperature, even after thermal effects penetrate to the insulated surfaces. The transient response of the hot wall may therefore be calculated from Equations 5.40 and 5.41. At the insulated surface (x* = 0), Equation 5.41 yields To - Ts 2 = C1 exp -1 Fo Ti - Ts

ANALYSIS: The billet corresponds to Case (e), Figure 5.11 (infinite rectangular bar). Hence, the temperature distribution is of the form ( x1, x 2 , t ) = P ( x1, t ) P ( x 2 , t ) where P(x,t) denotes the distribution corresponding to the plane wall. Because of symmetry in the x1 and x2 directions, the P functions are identical. Hence, (0, 0, t ) o (0, t ) = i i 2 Plane wall = T - T where i = Ti - T o = T (0,t ) - T 1/ 2 and L = 0.15m.

(5.89); that is, Tm +1 = Tm -1. Hence, p p (1 + 2 Fo ) To +1 - 2 Fo T1p +1 = To For the prescribed conditions, Bi = hx/k = 100 W/m K (0.006m)/0.30 W/mK = 2. If the explicit method were used, the most restrictive stability requirement would be given by Eq. (5.79). Hence, for 2 -7 2 Fo (1+Bi) 0.5, Fo 0.167. With Fo = t/x and = k/c = 1.67 10 m /s, the corresponding restriction on the time increment would be t 36s. Although no such restriction applies for the implicit method, a value of t = 30s is chosen, and the set of 11 finite-difference equations is solved using the Tools option designated as Finite-Difference Equations, One-Dimensional, and Transient from the IHT Toolpad. At t = 3600s, the solution yields:
2 p p T10 (3600s ) = 24.1C T0 (3600s ) = 71.5C < COMMENTS: (1) More accurate results may be obtained from the one-term approximation to the exact solution for one-dimensional, transient conduction in a plane wall. With Bi = hL/k = 20, Table 5.1 yields 1 = 1.496 rad and C1 = 1.2699. With Fo = t/L = 0.167, Eq. (5.41) then yields To = T +
2 (Ti - T) C1 exp - 1 Fo = 72.4C, and from Eq. (5.40b), Ts = T + (Ti - T) cos (1 ) = 24.5C. 2 ( ) Since the finite-difference results do not change with a reduction in the time step (t < 30s), the difference between the numerical and analytical results is attributed to the use of a coarse grid.

A few trial calculations are helpful. A value of t = 15s 2 provides Fo = 0.105, and using Eqs. (2) and (5), hr(300K, 1000K) = 72.3 W/m K and Bir =

Prepare a table summarizing the results and comment on the relative differences of the predicted temperatures. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) One-dimensional conduction in the x-direction, and (2) Constant properties.

(b) The results are tabulated below for the wall temperatures using the lumped capacitance method (LCM) of solution, Eq. 5.6.

From the table above, note that at p = 15 or t = 31s, the temperature distribution is still changing with time. It is likely that at least 15 more calculation sets are required to see whether steady-state is being approached. COMMENTS: (1) This problem should be solved with a computer rather than a handcalculator. For such a situation, it would be appropriate to decrease the spatial increment in order to obtain better estimates of the temperature distribution.

Performing an energy balance on the small control volume shown to the right, find Eg - Eout = 0 x 4 4 I2 e - Px To - Tsur = 0. Ac ( ) Substituting numerical values, find To = 2003K. It is unlikely that the present rod would ever reach this steady-state, maximum temperature. That is, the effect of conduction along the rod will cause the center temperature to be less than this value. PROBLEM 5.115

Temperature distributions - discussion: As expected, the temperatures of the nodes near the center of the book considerably lag those nearer the platen. The criterion for cure is T 170C = 443 K for tc = 5 min = 300 sec. From the temperature distributions, note that node 10 just reaches 443 K after 50 minutes and will not be cured. It appears that the region about node 5 will be cured. (b) The time required for the book to reach 37C = 310 K can likewise be seen from the temperature distribution results. The plates/boards nearest the platen will cool to the safe handling temperature with 1000 s = 16 min, but those near the center of the stack will require in excess of 2000 s = 32 min.

ANALYSIS: (a) The temperature histories for specified locations in the system are sketched on T-t coordinates below.
3 Initially, the temperature at all locations is uniform at Ti. Since there is negligible heat transfer to the surroundings, eventually the system will reach a uniform, steady-state temperature T(). During the engagement period, the interface temperature increases much more rapidly than at the mid-planes of the reaction (rp) and composite (cp) plates. The interface temperature should be the maximum within the system and could occur before lock-up, t = tlu. Continued ..... PROBLEM 5.118 (Cont.)

The external boundaries of the system are made adiabatic. The interface region provides the means to represent the frictional heat flux, specified with negligible thermal resistance and capacitance. The generation rate is prescribed as q = 1.6 1011 (1 - Time / 0.1) W / m3 0 Time t lu where the first coefficient is evaluated as q / 0.1 10-3 m and the 0.1 mm parameter is the thickness o of the region. Using the Run command, the integration is performed from 0 to 0.1 s with a time step of -6 110 s. Then, using the Specify|Generation command, the generation rate is set to zero and the Run|Continue command is executed. The temperature history is shown below. (c) Finite-difference method of solution, IHT. The nodal arrangement for the clutch pair is shown below with x = 0.1 mm and t = 1 ms. Nodes 02-10, 13-16 and 18-21 are interior nodes, and their finite-difference equations (FDE) can be called into the Workspace using Tools|Finite Difference Equations|One-Dimenisonal|Transient. Nodes 01 and 22 represent the mid-planes for the reaction and composite plates, respectively, with adiabatic boundaries. The FDE for node 17 is derived from an energy balance on its control volume (CV) considering different properties in each half of the CV. The FDE for node 11 and 12 are likewise derived using energy balances on their CVs.

The interface temperature peaks near 225C after 75 ms, and begins dropping toward the steady-state condition. The mid-plane of the reaction plate peaks around 100 ms, nearly reaching 200C. The temperature of the mid-plane of the composite plate increases slowly toward the steadystate condition. (2) The calculated temperature-time histories for the clutch pair display similar features as expected from our initial sketches on T vs. t coordinates, part a. The maximum temperature for the composite is very high, subjecting the bonded frictional material to high thermal stresses as well as accelerating deterioration. For the reaction steel plate, the temperatures are moderate, but there is a significant gradient that could give rise to thermal stresses and hence, warping. Note that for the composite plate, the steel section is nearly isothermal and is less likely to experience warping. (2) The IHT code representing the FDE for the 22 nodes and the frictional heat flux relation is shown below. Note use of the Lookup Table for representing the frictional heat flux vs. time boundary condition for nodes 11 and 12.

Using the View|Temperature vs. Time command, the temperature-time histories for the x/L = 0 (center), 0.5, and 1.0 (grill side) are plotted and shown below for the 2L = 10 mm thick patty. Using the View|Temperatures command, the time slider can be adjusted to read td, when the center point, x = 0, reaches 60C. See the summary table below. The IHT ready-to-solve model in Models|Transient Conduction|Plane Wall is based upon Eq. 5.40 and permits direct calculation of td when T(0,td) = 60C for patty thickness 2L = 10, 20 and 30 mm and initial temperatures of 20 and 5C. The IHT code is provided in Comment 3, and the results are tabulated below.

When the thickness is trebled, from 10 to 30 mm, td is 2 (590.4/67.7=) 8.7 times larger. We conclude that, td is nearly proportional to L , rather than linearly proportional to thickness.

(b) The temperature span for the cooking process ranges from T = 100 to Ti = 20 or 5C. The differences are (100-20 =) 80 or (100-5 =) 95C. If td is proportional to the overall temperature span, then we expect td for the cases with Ti = 5C to be a factor of (95/80 =) 1.19 higher (approximately 20% ) than with Ti = 20C. From the tabulated results above, for the thickness 2L = 10, 20 and 30 mm, the td with Ti = 5C are (80.2/67.7 = ) 1.18, (312 / 264.5 =) 1.18, and (699.1/590.4 =) 1.18, respectively, higher than with Ti = 20C. We conclude that td is nearly proportional to the temperature span (T - Ti). COMMENTS: (1) The results from the FEHT and IHT calculations are in excellent agreement. For this analysis, the FEHT model is more convenient to use as it provides direct calculations of the timeto-doneness. The FEHT tool allows the user to watch the cooking process. Use the ViewTemperature Contours command, click on the from start-to-stop button, and observe how color band changes represent the temperature distribution as a function of time.

The FEHT results are in excellent agreement with the IHT n-term series solutions for the x = 0 plane nodes (4,3), except for the x = L plane node (1). (b) Using the View Temperature vs. Time command, the temperature histories for nodes 4, 1, and 3 are plotted in the graph shown below. There is very small temperature difference between the locations on the surface, (node 1; 0, L) and (node 3; ro, 0). But, the temperature difference between these surface locations and the cylinder center (node 4; 0, 0) is large at early times. Such differences wherein locations cool at considerably different rates could cause variations in microstructure and hence, mechanical properties, as well as induce thermal stresses. Continued .....

(c) Use the View|Temperature Contours command with the shaded band option for the isotherm contours. Selecting the From Start to Stop time option, see the display of the contours as the cylinder cools during the quench process. The "movie" shows that cooling initiates at the corner (ro,L,t) and the isotherms quickly become circular and travel toward the center (0,0,t). The 10-isotherm distribution for t = 3 min is shown below.
