PROBLEM 4.62 KNOWN : Edge of adjoining walls (k = 1 W/m K) represented by symmetrical element bounded by the diagonal symmetry adiabat and a section of the wall thickness over which the temperature distribution is assumed to be linear. FIND : (a) Temperature distribution, heat rate and shape factor for the edge using the nodal network with = Δ x = Δ y = 10 mm; compare shape factor result with that from Table 4.1; (b) Assess the validity of ssuming linear temperature distributions across sections at various distances from the edge. a SCHEMATIC : ASSUMPTIONS : (1) Two-dimensional, steady-state conduction, (2) Constant properties, and (3) Linear temperature distribution at specified locations across the section. ANALYSIS : (a) Taking advantage of symmetry along the adiabat diagonal, all the nodes may be treated as interior nodes. Across the left-hand boundary, the temperature distribution is specified as linear. The finite-difference equations required to determine the temperature distribution, and hence the heat rate, can e written by inspection.

    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.
