2-D Thermal Surface Effect Element (SURF151) Input Listing: vm58.dat Test Case
Determine the centerline temperature and the surface temperature Ts of a bare steel wire generating heat at the rate q . The surface convection coefficient between the wire and the air (at temperature Ta) is h. Also, determine the heat dissipation rate q.

h = 5 Btu/hr-ft2-°F Geometric Properties
ro = 0.375 in = 0.03125 ft Loading
Ta = 70°F q = 111311.7 Btu/hr-ft3 Analysis Assumptions and Modeling Notes
Since the problem is axisymmetric, only a small sector is needed. An angle Θ= 30° is used for m...
