Tutorial 1 Introduction to Heat Transfer

1. A solid aluminum sphere of emissivity is initially at an elevated
temperature and is cooled by replacing it in a chamber. The walls of the
chamber are maintained at a lower temperature, and a cold gas is circulated
through the chamber. Obtain an equation that could be used to predict the
variation of the aluminum temperature with time during the cooling process.

The wastes generate thermal energy nonuniformly according to the relation

container. Steady state conditions are maintained by submerging the
container in a liquid that is at and provides a uniform convection
coefficient h. Obtain an expression for the total rate at which energy is
generated in a unit length of the container. Use this result to obtain an
expression for the temperature of the container wall.

3. A slab of ice in a thin-walled container 10mm thick and 300mm on each side
is placed on a well-insulated pad. At its top surface, the ice is exposed to
ambient air for which = and the convective coefficient is 25W/ K.
Neglecting heat transfer from the sides and assuming the ice-water mixture
remains at 0oC, how long will it take to completely melt the ice? The density
and latent heat of fusion of ice are 920 kg/m3 and 334 kJ/kg, respectively.

Guide:
In this problem, since only the top surface is exposed and all other surfaces are
well insulated, heat is only transferring across the top surface. Applying energy
balance across the surface will show that, heat transfer into the system through
convection is equal to the heat used to melt the ice.

By understanding the concept of the heat storage in a mass, the latent heat of
fusion can be used to calculate the amount of heat needed to fully melt the ice.
However, note the assumption that the system temperature remains constant
throughout the process.

4. An experiment to determine the convection coefficient associated with
airflow over the surface of a thick steel casting involves insertion of
thermocouples in the casting at distances of 10 mm and 20 mm from the
surface along a hypotheical line normal to the surface. The steel has a
thermal conductivity of 15 W/mK. If the thermocouples measure
temperatures of 50oC and 40oC in the steel when the air temperature is
100oC, what is the convection coefficient?

Guide:
1
st
step will be taking the boundary of the solid as a control volume. Apply energy
balance, since this is an infinitesimal small control volume, there will not be any
heat generate or stored. Hence all the heat transfer into the control volume
through convection will be transferred out and into the solid through conduction.
Simply by setting up the energy balance equation will easily yield the convection
coefficient.

Tutorial 3 One-Dimensional Steady State Heat Conduction without Heat Generation

1. Assume steady-state, one-dimensional heat conduction through the
symmetric shape shown below:

Assuming that there is no internal heat generation, derive an expression for
the thermal conductivity k(x) for these conditions: A(x) = (1 x),
T(x) = 300(1 2x x

), and q = 6000 W where A is in m
2
, T in K, and x in m.

Guide:

2) 1-D Heat Conduction (X-direction is only considered);
3) No Internal Heat generation;

In this case, first apply the GENERAL HEAT CONDUCTION EQUATION:
Since NO internal Heat generation, 1-D or X direction heat transfer, and steady
state, the GENERAL HEAT CONDUCTION EQUATION reduced to

The above equation shows the Heat Conducted is in Steady State and without
internal Heat generation. That means Q

Guide:
In this problem, there are two problem solving methods. Thermal resistance
method was preferred because the problem is simplified in a clear manner.

First, to start with this method, q could be represented as current in a circuit. Each
medium of heat transfer could be modeled as resistor with respective variables.
For example, R

= 1/hA; where A is the cross sectional area
perpendicular to the direction of heat flow. h is the convective heat transfer
coefficient. k is the heat conductivity.

Each temperatures is acted as potential of the point in a circuit. Hence, when there
is a temperature difference, there will be heat transfer carried out. This is
analogical to current must be flow from point with high potential to point with
low potential.

Bear in mind, the heat resistor method could only be used when:

the surface between film and substrate. Hence, do not mistaken the heat is

There are two directions of heat flow, namely q

Guide:

From the table A.1, the aluminum, the k = 238 W/m.K at (T=325K).
Since the interest part of the question is about the chip. Hence, the control surface is
drawn around the chip. The analysis starts with writing down the conservation energy

There is something worth to see, in the magnitude or resistance; the convective resistance
gives the highest resistance among 3 resistors. Try and see!

4) Steam flowing through a long, thin-walled pipe maintains the pipe wall at a
uniform temperature of 500 K. The pipe is covered with an insulation blanket
comprised two different materials, A and B. [r1 = 50 mm, r2 = 100 mm, kA = 2
W/mK, kB = 0.25 W/mK, Ts,1 = 500 K] The interface between the two materials
may be assumed to have an infinite contact resistance, and the entire outer
surface is exposed to air for which T = 300 K and h = 25 W/m2K.
(a) Sketch the thermal circuit of the system. Label all pertinent nodes and
resistances.
(b) For the prescribed conditions, what is the total heat loss from the pipe? What
are the outer surface temperatures Ts,2(A) and Ts,2(B)?

Guide:

In radial system, the tricky part is direction is different from direction in conventional
Cartesian axis. First write down GENERAL HEAT CONDUCTION equation in
CYLINDRICAL axis. To simplify the equation, the following assumptions have to be
Assumptions:
2) No internal energy generation
3) Infinite contact resistance between A and B

In this case, the direction to choose obviously is in r direction. The Heat can flow into
two directions, namely via A or via B to reach the common fluid temperature. Hence, if
the problem was solved by using the thermal resistors method, there must be a pair of
parallel thermal resistor connecting to the same temperatures.

First, look at the X-X red line drawn across the cylinder. The red line passes through free
stream outside the wall of A, wall A, center portion, wall B, Free stream outside the wall
B. The inner wall of A and B share the same temperature T

B share the common FREESTREAM temperature T (BUT NOT SAME OUTER
WALL TEMPERATURE!!). Hence, there must pair of parallel thermal resistors
connecting these two temperatures. Also, since both outer walls of A and B have different
temperatures with free stream temperature (TA TBT), there must be another two
convective thermal resistances before connected to the common free stream temperature,
T.
As a summary, whenever there are temperature differences across the mediums, there
must be heat transfer and hence, there must be thermal resistance, if the thermal
resistance method was used within the limitation of the condition.

In this case, since the heat flow through the wall A and wall B respectively at half
cylinder area, hence the cross sectional heat transfer area reduced by 2, hence, the R
should be multiple by 2 ( why? Try to think in term of electrical circuit resistor, the lower
cross sectional area, the higher the resistance, because less current passing through the
particular resistor).

Hence, the R (cond) for wall A, R (cond) = ln(r/r
i
)/k

R (conv) for wall A, R (conv) = 1/ (h**r*L);
R (cond) for wall B, R (cond) = ln(r/r

R (conv) for wall B, R (conv) = 1/ (h**r*L);

#Hint: Full cylinder area, A is 2rL.
Half cylinder area, A is rL.
Hence, the conduction thermal resistance for whole cylinder area is:
R=ln (r/r

Tutorial 1 Introduction to Heat Transfer

The steady-state temperature distribution in a one-dimensional wall of thermal
conductivity 50 W/mK and thickness 50 mm is observed to be T(oC) = a + b x2,
where a = 200oC, b = 2000oC/m2, and x is in meters.
(a) What is the heat generation rate q in the wall?
(b) Determine the heat fluxes at the two wall faces. In what manner are these heat
fluxes related to the heat generation rate?

Guide:
This question can simplified to be solved by using the general heat transfer equation
and together with the Fouriers law.
First, try to use GENERAL HEAT CONDUCTION equation.

Steady state implies the temperature is independent of the change of time.
One dimensional Means the 1-D or X direction heat transfer was only considered
as the heat transfer direction.

After the cancellation, the equation only left with:

For the later part, the equation could be reduced to simpler form, with certain
