PROBLEM 3.52KNOWN:Inner surface temperature of insulation blanket comprised of two semi-cylindrical shells of differentmaterials. Ambient air conditions.FIND:(a) Equivalent thermal circuit, (b) Total heat loss and material outer surface temperatures.SCHEMATIC:ASSUMPTIONS:(1) Steady-state conditions, (2) One-dimensional, radial conduction, (3) Infinite contactresistance between materials, (4) Constant properties.ANALYSIS:(a) The thermal circuit is,conv,Aconv,B2RR1/rhπʹʹ==()21cond AAln r / rRkʹ=<2icondBln r / rRkʹ=BThe conduction resistances follow from Section 3.3.1 and Eq. 3.28.
