Chapter 2 Heat Conduction Equation2-68 A compressed air pipe is subjected to uniform heat flux on the outer surface and convection on the inner surface. The mathematical formulation, the variation of temperature in the pipe, and the surface temperatures are to be determined for steady one-dimensional heat transfer. Assumptions 1Heat conduction is steady and one-dimensional since the pipe is long relative to its thickness, and there is thermal symmetry about the center line. 2Thermal conductivity is constant. 3 There is no heat generation in the pipe. PropertiesThe thermal conductivity is given to be k= 14 W/m⋅°C. Analysis (a) Noting that the 85% of the 300 W generated by the strip heater is transferred to the pipe, the heat flux through the outer surface is determined to be 222W/m1.169m)m)(6(0.042W30085.02=×===ππLrQAQqsss&&&Noting that heat transfer is one-dimensional in the radial r direction and heat flux is in the negative r
