KNOWN: Boundary conditions on four sides of a rectangular plate.
FIND: Temperature distribution.
SCHEMATIC: y q′′
s W T1 T1 0
0 x L
T1 ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Two-dimensional, steady-state conduction, (2) Constant properties.
ANALYSIS: This problem differs from the one solved in Section 4.2 only in the boundary
condition at the top surface. Defining θ = T – T∞, the differential equation and boundary
+ 2 =0
θ(0, y) = 0 θ(L, y) = 0 θ(x,0) = 0 k ∂θ
∂y = q′′
s (1a,b,c,d) y=W The solution is identical to that in Section 4.2 through Equation (4.11),
θ = ∑ Cn sin
n=1 (2) To determine Cn, we now apply the top surface boundary condition, Equation (1d).
Differentiating Equation (2) yields Continued…. PROBLEM 4.5 (Cont.)
∂y = ∞ ∑ Cn n=1 y=W nπ
L (3) Substituting this into Equation (1d) results in q′′
k ∞ ∑ A n sin n=1 nπx
L (4) where An = Cn(nπ/L)cosh(nπW/L). The principles expressed in Equations (4.13) through (4.16)
still apply, but now with reference to Equation (4) and Equation (4.14), we should choose
. Equation (4.16) then becomes
f(x) = q ′′/k , g n (x) = sin

L = q′′ 2 (-1) n+1 + 1
