Chapter 2 Heat Conduction Equation2-121 A long rectangular bar is initially at a uniform temperature of Ti. The surfaces of the bar at x = 0 and y = 0 are insulated while heat is lost from the other two surfaces by convection. The mathematical formulation of this heat conduction problem is to be expressed for transient two-dimensional heat transfer with no heat generation. Assumptions 1Heat transfer is transient and two-dimensional. 2 Thermal conductivity is constant.3 There is no heat generation. Analysis The differential equation and the boundary conditions for this heat conduction problem can be expressed as ∂α22221TxTyTt+=h,T∞Insulatedabh,T∞Tx txTytx(,,)(, ,)0000==−=−∞∞kTaytxhTa ytTkTxbtxhT xbtT[(,,)]]−TxyTi0=2-122 Heat is generated at a constant rate in a short cylinder. Heat is lost from the cylindrical surface at r = by convection to the surrounding medium at temperature with a heat transfer coefficient of h. The
