T = T air = constant T 2 = constant = temperature of outer surface of pipe Problem : can the energy loss increase with increase in insulation thickness? from chapter 15 q = U o A o T q A 3 (T 2 – T ) A 3 ln(r 3 /r 2 ) 1 2 π k 2 L h o
A 3 = 2 π r 3 L q 2 π r 3 L (T 2 – T ) 2 π r 3 L ln(r 3 /r 2 ) 1 2 π k 2 L h o r 3 q 2 π L (T 2 – T ) ln(r 3 /r 2 ) 1 k 2 h r 3 increases as r 3 decreases as r 3 increases increases

maximum suggested, so differentiate dq 2 π L (T 2 – T ) (1/k 2 r 3 – 1/ h r 3 2 ) dr 3 ln(r 3 /r 2 ) 1 2 k 2 h r 3 = 0 solving for r 3 r 3 = k 2 /h the evaluation of the second derivative d 2 q r negative number dr 3 2 r 3 = k/h
q is maximum at r 3 = k/h Typical values given in text k 85% magnesia = 0.0692 W/m.K h = 34 W/m 2 .k (natural convection) r critical = k/h = 0.20cm = 0.0787 inch no practical pipe has a radius this small!
