Chapter 9 Natural Convection 9-36 A steam pipe extended from one end of a plant to the other with no insulation on it. The rate of heat loss from the steam pipe and the annual cost of those heat losses are to be determined. Assumptions 1 Steady operating conditions exist. 2 Air is an ideal gas with constant properties. 3 The local atmospheric pressure is 1 atm. Properties The properties of air at 1 atm and the film temperature of ( T s + T )/2 = (170+20)/2 = 95 ° C are (Table A-15) Steam L = 60 m D =6.03 cm T s = 170 ° C ε = 0.7 Air T = 20 ° C 1 - 2 5 K 002717 . 0 K ) 273 95 ( 1 1 7121 . 0 Pr /s m 10 252 . 2 C W/m. 0306 . 0 = + = = = × = ° = f T k β υ Analysis The characteristic length in this case is the outer diameter of the pipe, m 0.0603 = = D L c .
