Unformatted text preview: Review problems 6-59 The Coutte flow of a fluid between two parallel plates is considered. The temperature distribution is to be sketched and determined, and the maximum temperature of the fluid, as well as the temperature of the fluid at the contact surfaces with the lower and upper plates are to be determined. Assumptions Steady operating conditions exist. Properties The viscosity and thermal conductivity of the fluid are given to be p = 08 N-s/m2 and kf= 0.145 W/m-K. The thermal conductivity of lower plate is given to be kp = 15 W/m-K.

We observe from this figure that there are different slopes at the interface (y = 0) because of different conductivities (k,, > kf). The slope is zero at the upper plate 02 = L) because of adiabatic condition.
