PROBLEM 4.64 KNOWN: Straight fin of uniform cross section with prescribed thermal conditions and geometry; tip ondition allows for convection. c FIND: (a) Calculate the fin heat rate, f q , and tip temperature, , assuming one-dimensional heat transfer in the fin; calculate the Biot number to determine whether the one-dimensional assumption is valid, (b) Using the finite-element software FEHT, perform a two-dimensional analysis to determine the fin heat rate and the tip temperature; display the isotherms; describe the temperature field and the heat flow pattern inferred from the display, and (c) Validate your FEHT code against the 1-D nalytical solution for a fin using a thermal conductivity of 50 and 500 W/m K. L T a SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state conduction with constant properties, (2) Negligible radiation xchange, (3) Uniform convection coefficient. e ANALYSIS: (a) Assuming one-dimensional conduction, L q and can be determined using Eqs.

    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.
