Chapter 4 Transient Heat Conduction 4-125 A thick wall is exposed to cold outside air. The wall temperatures at distances 15, 30, and 40 cm from the outer surface at the end of 2-hour cooling period are to be determined. Assumptions 1 The temperature in the wall is affected by the thermal conditions at outer surfaces only. Therefore, the wall can be considered to be a semi-infinite medium 2 The thermal properties of the wall are constant. Properties The thermal properties of the brick are given to be k = 0.72 W/m. ° C and α = 1.6 × 10 -7 m 2 /s.
