Unformatted text preview: decrease the total heat transfer across your wall section. Is he correct? Calculate the heat transfer in W/m 2 for a wall section with steel studs. Assume again that there is no lateral heat transfer. For this case, the insulation occupies 90% of the wall surface area and the steel occupies 10%. (k steel = 43 W/mK) c.) Is the interior wall temperature the same over the insulated and stud sections? For case b, approximate the temperature of the interior wall over an insulated section. Compare this to the temperature of the interior wall over a steel stud.
