Chapter 15 Steady Heat Conduction 3-54 A wall is to be constructed of 10-cm thick wood studs or with pairs of 5-cm thick wood studs nailed to each other. The rate of heat transfer through the solid stud and through a stud pair nailed to each other, as well as the effective conductivity of the nailed stud pair are to be determined. Assumptions 1 Heat transfer is steady since there is no indication of change with time. 2 Heat transfer can be approximated as being one-dimensional since it is predominantly in the x direction. 3 Thermal conductivities are constant. 4 The thermal contact resistance between the two layers is negligible. 4 Heat transfer by radiation is disregarded. Properties The thermal conductivities are given to be k = 0.11 W/m °C for wood studs and k = 50 W/m °C for manganese steel nails. Analysis ( a ) The heat transfer area of the stud is A = (0.1 m)(2.5 m) = 0.25 m 2 . The thermal resistance and
