Unformatted text preview: 3. You may not have time to fit transient data for every rod and every thermocouple. Select some smaller set of thermocouples for 2-3rods and see how the model fits. One thing to definitely allow to vary as you play with the modeling is Tsteam. 4. Memo - should go over some of the salient findings - what can you say about aluminum vs stainless steel? How does the rod diameter effect the temperature profile? How well does the model work for steady state? For transient? What sort of heat transfer coef do you find from your data? How does your experimental heat transfer coef compare to theoretical values?...
