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.

    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.
