PROBLEM 4.75 KNOWN : Electronic device cooled by conduction to a heat sink. FIND : (a) Beginning with a symmetrical element, find the thermal resistance per unit depth between the device and lower surface of the sink, t,d s R (m K/W) using a coarse (5x5) nodal network, determine ; (b) Using nodal networks with finer grid spacings, determine the effect of grid size on the precision of the thermal resistance calculation; (c) Using a fine nodal network, determine the effect of device width on with w t,d s R t,d s R d /w s = 0.175, 0.275, 0.375 and 0.475 keeping w s and L fixed. SCHEMATIC : ASSUMPTIONS : (1) Steady-state, two-dimensional conduction, (2) Constant properties, and (3) No nternal generation, (4) Top surface not covered by device is insulated. i ANALYSIS : (a) The coarse 5x5 nodal network is shown in the sketch including the nodes adjacent to the symmetry lines and the adiabatic surface. As such, all the finite- difference equations are interior nodes and can be written by inspection directly onto the IHT workspace.

    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.
