ME 315 Exam 1 Solutions 8:00 -9:00 PM Tuesday, February 10, 2009 1. (25 points) Consider a composite slab composed of a layer of plastic bonded to a layer of copper. The thickness of the plastic layer is 15 mm while that of the copper layer is 10 mm . The cross-sectional area of the slab is 100 cm 2 . There is contact resistance at the plastic-Cu interface due to the bonding. During testing, the plastic side is subjected to a hot fluid stream at T 1 = 400 K and a heat transfer coefficient of 200 W/m 2 K . The copper side is subjected to surrounding air at temperature T 2 = 300 K , with a heat transfer coefficient of 100 W/m 2 K . You are also given the following data: Thermal contact conductance at plastic-Cu interface = 420 W/m 2 K . k plastic = 2 W/mK ; k cu = 400 W/mK (a) Draw a thermal circuit for the composite showing all relevant thermal resistances and their numerical values.
