A well-mixed fluid is heated by a long iron plate of conductivity k and thickness t. Heat is generated uniformly
in the plate at the rate q . If the surface convection coefficient is h and the fluid temperature is Tf, determine the
temperature at the center of the plate Tc and the heat flow rate to the fluid qf. Figure 94.1 Plate Problem Sketch Material Properties
k = 25 Btu/hr-ft-°F
h = 13.969738 Btu/hr-ft2-°F Geometric Properties
t = 1/2 in = 0.041666 ft Loading q = 100,000 Btu/hr-ft3
Tf = 150°F Analysis Assumptions and Modeling Notes
A 1 ft2 area is used for the conduction and convection elements. Only one half of the plate is modeled because
of symmetry. Node 6 is given an arbitrary location. POST1 is used to process results from the solution phase. ANSYS Verification Manual . ANSYS Release 9.0 . 002114 . © SAS IP, Inc. 1–213 VM94 Results Comparison
