Sepht AE, 1.005 Msek For Review MAE442 og, Fall 2085 Exam #] Exam #1 February 14, 2005 1.In problem 3.47, consider the 5mm diameter stainless steel cable carrying an electrical current of 700amp with an electrical resistance per unit length of 0.0006 ohm/m. The cable is exposed to air having a temperature of 30°C and wind conditions are such that the convective heat transfer coefficient is 25 W/m’-K. What is the effect on the temperature of the cable surface if insulation of thickness 20mm is put onto the surface? The insulation has thermal conductivity of 0.5 W/m-K and there is a contact resistance between the cable surface and the insulation of 0.02 m°K/W. Recall that energy is dissipated in a electrical resistance in proportional to the current squared times the resistance, (’R). 2. In problem 4.52, consider the effect of internal heat generation, qdot = 1x10°W/m, for a beam of square cross-section (60mm by 60mm) with a boundary condition of 50°C on three sides and the top surface is exposed to convection at 100°C and h =100 W/m?-K. The beam has thermal conductivity of W/m-K. With a grid spacing of 30mm use a finite difference method to find the steady state temperatures T1 and T2. 3. Consider the effect of the following modifications to problem 5.101. The plane wall (k=L.SW/m-K, a= 1.5x10m’/sec) has thickness of L=40mm and an initial uniform temperature of 25°C. Suddenly both surfaces (x=0 an x=L) of the wall are exposed to heating by a fluid for which the temperature is 50°C and the convective heat transfer coefficient is h=1000 W/m?-K, while heat is uniformly generated within the wall at qdot== 1x107W/m*. With a Ax= 10mm and At= 1.0sec, use a finite difference method to find the temperature distribution after one time step. 4. In problem 14.46, consider the case when the iron wall is not semi-infinite but is an iron sheet of thickness Imm. The left face of the wall is suddenly exposed to a dissolved carbon of concentration of 12kg/m* while the right surface is coated with a material that, blocks the carbon diffusion. The right face of the wall behaves like an insulated surface in the analogy with heat transfer. Taking a Ax= 0.5mm and At= 900sec, use a finite difference method to find the carbon distribution in the iron after 1 hour-exposure to the carbon. The diffusion coefficient for carbon into iron is 2x10"'m’/sec. 1. In problem 3.47, consider the same Smm diameter stainless steel cable carrying an electrical current of 700amp with an electrical resistance per unit length of 0.0004 ohm/a, The cable is exposed to air having a temperature of 30°C and wind conditions are such that the convective heat transfer coefficient is 25 Wim?-K. What is the effect on the temperature of the cable surface if insulation of thickness 20mm is put onto the surface? The insulation has thermal conductivity of 0.5 W/m-K and there is a contact, resistance between the cable surface and the insulation of 0.02 m"K/W.
