Unformatted text preview: PROBLEM 4.67 KNOWN: Symmetrical section of a flow channel with prescribed values of q and k, as well as the surface convection conditions. See Problem 4.46. ¡ . FIND: Using the finiteelement method of FEHT, (a) Determine the temperature distribution and plot the isotherms; identify the coolest and hottest regions, and the region with steepest gradients; describe the heat flow field, (b) Calculate the heat rate per unit length (W/m) from the outer surface A to the adjacent fluid, (c) Calculate the heat rate per unit length (W/m) to surface B from the inner fluid, and d) Verify that the results are consistent with an overall energy balance on the section. ( SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steadystate, twodimensional conduction, (2) Constant properties. ANALYSIS: (a) The symmetrical section shown in the schematic is drawn in FEHT with the specified boundary conditions, material property and generation. The View  Temperature Contours command is used to represent ten isotherms (isopotentials) that have minimum and maximum values...
