Chapter 4 Transient Heat Conduction 4-49E Whole chickens are to be cooled in the racks of a large refrigerator. Heat transfer coefficient that will enable to meet temperature constraints of the chickens while keeping the refrigeration time to a minimum is to be determined. Assumptions 1 The chicken is a homogeneous spherical object. 2 Heat conduction in the chicken is one- dimensional because of symmetry about the midpoint. 3 The thermal properties of the chicken are constant. 4 The heat transfer coefficient is constant and uniform over the entire surface. 5 The Fourier number is τ > 0.2 so that the one-term approximate solutions (or the transient temperature charts) are applicable (this assumption will be verified).
