PROBLEM 4.52 KNOWN: Long bar of square cross section, three sides of which are maintained at a constant temperature while the fourth side is subjected to a convection process. FIND: (a) The mid-point temperature and heat transfer rate between the bar and fluid; a numerical technique with grid spacing of 0.2 m is suggested, and (b) Reducing the grid spacing by a factor of 2, find the midpoint temperature and the heat transfer rate. Also, plot temperature distribution across the surface xposed to the fluid. e SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state, two-dimensional conduction, (2) Constant properties. ANALYSIS: (a) Considering symmetry, the nodal network is shown above. The matrix inversion method of solution will be employed. The finite-difference equations are: Nodes 1, 3, 5 - Interior nodes, Eq. 4.29; written by inspection. Nodes 2, 4, 6 - Also can be treated as interior points, considering symmetry. Nodes 7, 8 - On a plane with convection, Eq. 4.42; noting that h Δ x/k = 10 W/m 2 K × 0.2 m/2W/m K = 1, find Node 7: (2T 5 + 300 + T 8 ) + 2 × 1

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
