#16. (US) A large slab 1m thick is initially at a uniform temperature of 150˚C. Suddenly its front face is exposed to a fluid maintained at 250 ˚C, but its rear face remained insulated. The fluid has a convective coefficient of 40W/m 2 • K. Assume the solid has a thermal diffusivity of 0.000025 m 2 /s and a thermal conductivity of 20W/m • K. Using a numerical finite difference method with M=5 and 4 slices, construct a table for the temperature profile of the slab up to a time of 4000 sec.

GEANKOPLIS: Problem 4.1-1 Insulation in a Cold Room. Calculate the heat loss per m 2 of surface area for a temporary insulating wall of a food cold storage room where the outside temperature is 299.9 K and the inside temperature is 276.5 K. The wall is composed of 25.4 mm of corkboard having a k of 0.0433 W/m • K Given: Δ x Δ x= 0.0254 m T 1 = 299.9 K T 2 = 276.5 K Basis: A=1 m 2 Req’d: q q q= 39.89 W/m 2

Problem 5.3-6 A flat brick wall 1.0 ft thick is the lining on one side of a furnace. If the wall is at uniform temperature of 100°F and one side is suddenly exposed to a gas at 1100°F, calculate the time for the furnace wall at a point 0.5 ft from the surface to reach 500°F. The rear side of the wall is insulated. The convection coefficient is 2.6 btu/h-ft 2 -°F. The physical properties of the brick are k=0.65 btu/h-ft-°F and α=0.02 ft 2 /h.

brick wall To=100F q required: time for the wall at a point 0.5ft from the surface to reach 500F 0.5ft 1.0 ft furnace T1= 1100F

Given: To= 100°F T1= 1100°F h= 2.6 btu/h-ft 2 -°F k=0.65 btu/h-ft-°F α=0.02 ft 2 /h x 1 = 0.5 ft

To= 100°F

T1= 1100°F

h= 2.6 btu/h-ft 2 -°F

k=0.65 btu/h-ft-°F

α=0.02 ft 2 /h

x 1 = 0.5 ft

Solution: m= k/(hx1) =0.65/(2.6 x 05) = 0.5 Y= (Ti-T)/(T1-To) = (1100-500)/(1100-100) = 0.6 Plotting these on Fig.5.3-6(Heisler), x≈ 0.4 x= αt/(x 1 ) 2 t = 0.4(x 1 ) 2 / α = 0.4(0.5) 2 /0.2 = 0.05h = 3mins
