ChE150A Week 12 Section handout Example 1 A composite wall consists of 3 solid slabs with k 2 > k 1 > k 3 . The outer surface of slab 1 has a constant temperature, T a , and the outer surface of slab 3 has a constant temperature, T d , with T a >T d . The width of each slab is L. Sketch the relative temperature profiles within each slab, assuming 1D conduction in the x-direction and no heat generation. Example 2 (17.7 in W 3 R) Radioactive waste (k=20 W/mK) is stored in a cylindrical steel tank (k=15 W/mK) with inner and outer diameters of 1 m and 1.2 m, respectively. Thermal energy is uniformly generated

The top and bottom of the tank are insulated so that all heat transfer occurs in the radial direction. Determine the steady-state temperatures at the inner and outer surfaces of the tank walls and at the center of the waste....
