SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state, one-dimensional conduction, (2) Constant properties, (3) No internal heat generation. ANALYSIS: Performing an energy balance on the object according to Eq. 1.11a, , E E in out = 0 it follows that E E q in out x = and that q q x x x 1 $ . That is, the heat rate within the object is everywhere constant. From Fouriers law, q k A dT dx x x = , and since q x and k are both constants, it follows that A dT dx Constant. x = That is, the product of the cross-sectional area normal to the heat rate and temperature gradient remains a constant and independent of distance x. It follows that since A x increases with x, then dT/dx must decrease with increasing x. Hence, the temperature distribution appears as shown above. COMMENTS: (1) Be sure to recognize that dT/dx is the slope of the temperature distribution. (2) What would the distribution be when T 2 > T 1 ? (3) How does the heat flux, q x , vary with distance? PROBLEM 2.2 KNOWN: Hot water pipe covered with thick layer of insulation. FIND: Sketch temperature distribution and give brief explanation to justify shape. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state conditions, (2) One-dimensional (radial) conduction, (3) No internal heat generation, (4) Insulation has uniform properties independent of temperature and position. ANALYSIS: Fouriers law, Eq. 2.1, for this one-dimensional (cylindrical) radial system has the form q k A dT dr k 2 r dT dr r r = = " 1 6 where A r and r = 2 " " is the axial length of the pipe-insulation system. Recognize that for steady- state conditions with no internal heat generation, an energy balance on the system requires . E E since E E in out g st = = = 0 Hence q r = Constant. That is, q r is independent of radius (r). Since the thermal conductivity is also constant, it follows that r dT dr Constant. ! " $ # = This relation requires that the product of the radial temperature gradient, dT/dr, and the radius, r, remains constant throughout the insulation. For our situation, the temperature distribution must appear as shown in the sketch. COMMENTS: (1) Note that, while q r is a constant and independent of r, q r is not a constant. How does q r r 1 6 vary with r? (2) Recognize that the radial temperature gradient, dT/dr, decreases with increasing radius. PROBLEM 2.3 KNOWN: A spherical shell with prescribed geometry and surface temperatures. FIND: Sketch temperature distribution and explain shape of the curve. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state conditions, (2) One-dimensional conduction in radial (spherical coordinates) direction, (3) No internal generation, (4) Constant properties....
