PROBLEM 4.79 KNOWN : Bottom half of an I-beam exposed to hot furnace gases. FIND : (a) The heat transfer rate per unit length into the beam using a coarse nodal network (5 × 4) considering the temperature distribution across the web is uniform and (b) Assess the reasonableness of the uniform web-flange interface temperature assumption. SCHEMATIC : ASSUMPTIONS : (1) Steady-state, two-dimensional conduction, and (2) Constant properties. ANALYSIS : (a) The symmetrical section of the I-beam is shown in the Schematic above indicating the web-flange interface temperature is uniform, T w = 100 ° C. The nodal arrangement to represent this system is shown below. The nodes on the line of symmetry have been shown for convenience in deriving the nodal finite-difference equations. Using the IHT Finite-Difference Equations Tool , the set of nodal equations can be readily formulated. The temperature distribution ( ° C) is tabulated in the same arrangement as the nodal network.
