Chapter 2 Heat Conduction Equation2-135 A large plane wall is subjected to convection on the inner and outer surfaces. The mathematical formulation, the variation of temperature, and the temperatures at the inner and outer surfaces to be determined for steady one-dimensional heat transfer. Assumptions 1Heat conduction is steady and one-dimensional. 2Thermal conductivity is constant. 3 There is no heat generation. PropertiesThe thermal conductivity is given to be k= 0.77 W/m⋅°C. Analysis (a) Taking the direction normal to the surface of the wall to be the x direction with x = 0 at the inner surface, the mathematical formulation of this problem can be expressed as dTdx220=and dxdTkTTh)0()]0([11−=−∞])([)(22∞−=−TLThdxLdTk(b) Integrating the differential equation twice with respect to x yields
