C HAPTER 3: S TEADY S TATE 1-D C ONDUCTION We already mentioned the parallels between heat flow and electrical current flow and the idea of k and h being measures of the resistance to heat transfer through a medium For electricity, resistance is related to the flow (of electrons) by Ohm’s Law: In parallel, for heat flow: R T q Δ = We will generate expressions for thermal resistance R in different cases Voltage – Driving Force R V I = Electrical Resistance to Flow Temperature Difference - Driving Force Thermal Resistance to Flow Flow (of electrons) Flow (of heat)

Conduction Through Plane Walls In general: = + + + q z T k z y T k y x T k x t T c p ρ For a slab or wall at steady state with no internal heat generation (applying the semi-infinite assumption) 0 = x T k x b 0 2 2 = x T if k =constant Integrating this expression: T ( x ) = C 1 x + C 2 B y = mx + b linear T profile inside slabs with no heat generation Since x T kA q = , therefore 1 kAC q = where C 1 =slope of temp. profile

If C 1 is the slope, x T x x T T C Δ Δ = = 1 2 1 2 1 So, R T x T kA q Δ = Δ Δ = Thus, thermal resistance is defined as kA x R Δ = (slab, 1-D, steady state) We could also get this result by applying our boundary conditions: In general, T ( x ) = C 1 x + C 2 B.C. #1 – Dirichlet - T=T 1 at x= 0 b T 1 = C 1 (0)+ C 2 b T 1 = C 2 B.C. #2 – Dirichlet - T=T 2 at x=L b T 2 = C 1 L+C 2 = C 1 L+T 1 x T L T T C Δ Δ = = 1 2 1 T 1 T 2 q x L

Conduction Through Cylinders For a tube or hollow cylinder , it is harder to give an equation since the semi-infinite assumption may not hold i.e. the axis over which the heat flow is occurring may be different Radial flow is most common: 0 1 = r T kr r r (no heat generation) if k is constant 0 = r T r r Integrating, 1 C r T r = , r C r T 1 = Therefore, the temperature profile is: 2 1 ln C r C T + = Thus, in a cylinder, the temperature profile is logarithmic over the radius.
