Chapter 3 Steady Heat Conduction 3-176 A spherical tank containing iced water is buried underground. The rate of heat transfer to the tank is to be determined for the insulated and uninsulated ground surface cases. Assumptions 1 Steady operating conditions exist. 2 Heat transfer is two-dimensional (no change in the axial direction). 3 Thermal conductivity of the concrete is constant. 4 The tank surface is assumed to be at the same temperature as the iced water because of negligible resistance through the steel. Properties The thermal conductivity of the concrete is given to be k = 0.55 W/m
