Unformatted text preview: Chapter 2 Heat Conduction Equation 26C Heat transfer to a hot dog can be modeled as twodimensional since temperature differences (and thus heat transfer) will exist in the radial and axial directions (but there will be symmetry about the center line and no heat transfer in the azimuthal direction. This would be a transient heat transfer process since the temperature at any point within the hot dog will change with time during cooking. Also, we would use the cylindrical coordinate system to solve this problem since a cylinder is best described in cylindrical coordinates. Also, we would place the origin somewhere on the center line, possibly at the center of the hot dog. Heat transfer in a very long hot dog could be considered to be onedimensional in preliminary calculations. 27C Heat transfer to a roast beef in an oven would be transient since the temperature at any point within the roast will change with time during cooking. Also, by approximating the roast as a spherical object, this heat transfer process can be modeled as onedimensional since temperature differences (and thus heat...
