PROBLEM 4.16 KNOWN: Thin-walled copper tube enclosed by an eccentric cylindrical shell; intervening space illed with insulation. f FIND: Heat loss per unit length of tube; compare result with that of a concentric tube-shell rrangement. a SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state conditions, (2) Constant properties, (3) Thermal resistances of opper tube wall and outer shell wall are negligible, (4) Two-dimensional conduction in insulation. c ANALYSIS: The heat loss per unit length written in terms of the shape factor S is and from Table 4.1 for this geometry, () ( 12 qk S /TT =− A ) 22 2 -1 SD d 2/ c o s h . 2Dd π ⎡⎤ +− = ⎢⎥ ⎣⎦ A 4 z S ubstituting numerical values, all dimensions in mm, 2 -1 -1 120 30 4 20 S 2 / cosh 2 / cosh 1.903 4.991.
