Chapter 5 Numerical Methods in Heat Conduction 5-86 The passive solar heating of a house through a Trombe wall is studied. The temperature distribution in the wall in 12 h intervals and the amount of heat transfer during the first and second days are to be determined. Assumptions 1Heat transfer is one-dimensional since the exposed surface of the wall large relative to its thickness. 2 Thermal conductivity is constant. 3The heat transfer coefficients are constant. PropertiesThe wall properties are given to be k= 0.70 W/m⋅°C, , and /sm1044.026−×=ακ=0.76. The hourly variation of monthly average ambient temperature and solar heat flux incident on a vertical surface is given to be Time of day Ambient Temperature, °C Solar insolation W/m27am-10am 10am-1pm 1pm-4pm 4pm-7pm 7pm-10pm 10pm-1am 1am-4am 4am-7am 0 4 6 1 -2 -3 -4 -4 375 750 580 95 0 0 0 0 Trombe wall GlazingSun’s raysHeat loss Heat gain hinTinhoutToutΔx••••••0 1 2 3 4 5hinTinhoutToutAnalysis The nodal spacing is given to be
