Unformatted text preview: Chapter 8 Internal Forced Convection 8-55 The components of an electronic system located in a rectangular horizontal duct are cooled by forced air. The exit temperature of the air and the highest component surface temperature are to be determined. Assumptions 1 Steady flow conditions exist. 2 The inner surfaces of the duct are smooth. 3 The thermal resistance of the duct is negligible. 4 Air is an ideal gas with constant properties. 5 The pressure of air is 1 atm. Properties We assume the bulk mean temperature for air to be 35 C since the mean temperature of air at the inlet will rise somewhat as a result of heat gain through the duct whose surface is exposed to a constant heat flux. The properties of air at 1 atm and this temperature are (Table A-15) 7268 .
