The components in the duct are cooled by forced air, which enters at 32°C at a rate of 0.65 m3/min. Assuming 85 percent of the heat generated inside is transferred to air flowing through the duct and the remaining 15 percent is lost through the outer surfaces of the duct, deter- 18 cm Air inlet FIGURE P8–60 PCB, 10 W cen58933_ch08.qxd 9/4/2002 11:29 AM Page 456 456 HEAT TRANSFER components is not to exceed 70°C anywhere in the system. Use air properties at 25°C. Air, 0.27 m3/s 10°C, 95 kPa Review Problems 8–61 A geothermal district heating system involves the transport of geothermal water at 110°C from a geothermal well to a city at about the same elevation for a distance of 12 km at a rate of 1.5 m3/s in 60-cm-diameter stainless steel pipes. The fluid pressures at the wellhead and the arrival point in the city are to be the same. The minor losses are negligible because of the large length-to-diameter ratio and the relatively small number of components that cause minor losses. (a) Assuming the pump-motor efficiency to be 65 percent, determine the electric power consumption of the system for pumping. (b) Determine the daily cost of power consumption of the system if the unit cost of electricity is \$0.06/kWh. (c) The temperature of geothermal water is estimated to drop 0.5°C during this long flow. Determine if the frictional heating during flow can make up for this drop in temperature. 8–62 Repeat Problem 8–61 for cast iron pipes of the same diameter. 20 cm Air Compressor 150 hp FIGURE P8–65 water, determine the outlet temperature of air as it leaves the underwater portion of the duct. Also, for an overall fan efficiency of 55 percent, determine the fan power input needed to overcome the flow resistance in this section of the duct. 8–63 The velocity profile in fully developed laminar flow in a circular pipe, in m/s, is given by (r) 6(1 100r2) where r is the radial distance from the centerline of the pipe in m. Determine (a) the radius of the pipe, (b) the mean velocity through the pipe, and (c) the maximum velocity in the pipe. Air 25°C, 3 m/s 8–64E The velocity profile in fully developed laminar flow of water at 40°F in a 80-ft-long horizontal circular pipe, in ft/s, is given by (r) 0.8(1 625r2) where r is the radial distance from the centerline of the pipe in ft. Determine (a) the volume flow rate of water through the pipe, (b) the pressure drop across the pipe, and (c) the useful pumping power required to overcome this pressure drop. 8–65 The compressed air requirements of a manufacturing facility are met by a 150-hp compressor located in a room that is maintained at 20°C. In order to minimize the compressor work, the intake port of the compressor is connected to the outside through an 11-m-long, 20-cm-diameter duct made of thin aluminum sheet. The compressor takes in air at a rate of 0.27 m3/s at the outdoor conditions of 10°C and 95 kPa. Disregarding the thermal resistance of the duct and taking the heat transfer coefficient on the outer surface of the duct to be 10 W/m2 °C, determine (a) the power used by the compressor to overcome the pressure drop in this duct, (b) the rate of heat transfer to the incoming cooler air, and (c) the temperature rise of air as it flows through the duct. 8–66 A house built on a riverside is to be cooled in summer by utilizing the cool water of the river, which flows at an average temperature of 15°C. A 15-m-long section of a circular duct of 20-cm diameter passes through the water. Air enters the underwater section of the duct at 25°C at a velocity of 3 m/s.

The surrounding ambient air is at a temperature of 80°F, and the heat transfer coefficient on the outer surface of the exhaust pipe is 3 Btu/h ft2 °F. Assuming the exhaust gases to have the properties of air, determine (a) the velocity of the exhaust gases at the inlet of the exhaust pipe and (b) the temperature at which the exhaust gases will leave the pipe and enter the air. 8–69 Hot water at 90°C enters a 15-m section of a cast iron pipe (k 52 W/m °C) whose inner and outer diameters are 4 and 4.6 cm, respectively, at an average velocity of 0.8 m/s. The outer surface of the pipe, whose emissivity is 0.7, is exposed to the cold air at 10°C in a basement, with a convection heat cen58933_ch08.qxd 9/4/2002 11:29 AM Page 457 457 CHAPTER 8 Tambient = 10°C 8–72 Liquid-cooled systems have high heat transfer coefficients associated with them,...
