A long hollow generator coil has its inner and outer surface temperatures maintained at temperature To while
generating Joule heat at a uniform rate q . The thermal conductivity of the coil material varies with temperature
according to the function k(T) = C0 + C1 T. Determine the temperature distribution in the coil. Figure 105.1 Heat Generating Coil Problem Sketch ANSYS Verification Manual . ANSYS Release 9.0 . 002114 . © SAS IP, Inc. 1–238 VM105
C0 = 10 Btu/hr-ft-°F Geometric Properties
ri = 1/4 in = 1/48 ft
ro = 1 in = 1/12 ft C1 = 0.075 Btu/hr-ft-°F2 Loading
To = 0°F q = 1 x 106 Btu/hr-ft3 Analysis Assumptions and Modeling Notes
Since the problem is axisymmetric only a symmetry sector (one-element wide) is needed. A small angle (Θ=10°)
is used fo...
