Chapter 3 Steady Heat Conduction 3-177 A cylindrical tank containing liquefied natural gas (LNG) is placed at the center of a square solid bar. The rate of heat transfer to the tank and the LNG temperature at the end of a one-month period are to be determined. Assumptions 1 Steady operating conditions exist. 2 Heat transfer is two-dimensional (no change in the axial direction). 3 Thermal conductivity of the bar is constant. 4 The tank surface is at the same temperature as the iced water. Properties The thermal conductivity of the bar is given to be k = 0.0006 W/m °C. The density and the specific heat of LNG are given to be 425 kg/m 3 and 3.475 kJ/kg °C, respectively, -160 ° C L = 1.9 m D = 0.6 m 20 ° C 1.4 m Analysis The shape factor for this configuration is given in Table 3-5 to be
