Chapter 6 Fundamentals of Convection 6-44 The flow of fluid between two large parallel plates is considered. Using the results of Problem 6-43, a relation for the volumetric heat generation rate is to be obtained using the conduction problem, and the result is to be verified. Assumptions 1 Steady operating conditions exist. 2 The fluid has constant properties. 3 Body forces such as gravity are negligible. V Fluid L T 0 Analysis The energy equation in Prob. 6-44 was determined to be 2 2 2 = L dy T d k V μ (1) The steady one-dimensional heat conduction equation with constant heat generation is 0 0 2 2 = + k g dy T d (2) Comparing the two equation above, the volumetric heat generation rate is determined to be
