ANALYTICAL HEAT TRANSFER

Mihir Sen Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering University of Notre Dame Notre Dame, IN 46556 May 6, 2008

Preface
These are lecture notes for AME60634: Intermediate Heat Transfer, a second course on heat transfer for undergraduate seniors and beginning graduate students. At this stage the student can begin to apply knowledge of mathematics and computational methods to the problems of heat transfer. Thus, in addition to some undergraduate knowledge of heat transfer, students taking this course are expected to be familiar with vector algebra, linear algebra, ordinary differential equations, particle and rigid-body dynamics, thermodynamics, and integral and differential analysis in fluid mechanics. The use of computers is essential both for the purpose of computation as well as for display and visualization of results. At present these notes are in the process of being written; the student is encouraged to make extensive use of the literature listed in the bibliography. The students are also expected to attempt the problems at the end of each chapter to reinforce their learning. I will be glad to receive comments on these notes, and have mistakes brought to my attention.

A classic work is that of Jakob [94]. 2 . for example. the increase in internal energy is equal to the net heat and work transferred in. Both heat transfer and work transfer increase the internal energy of the body.1. The laws of thermodynamics govern the transfer of heat. 19. 65. including vibrational and rotational motion. 80. 1. 183. 76. Heat is the energy transferred between two points at different temperatures. 188. so that the heat flux coming in must be equal to that going out. A surface cannot store energy. 207. More advanced books are.1 Show that the above statement of the third law implies that heat is always transferred from a high temperature to a low. According to the first law. Example 1. 22. 111. 14. The zeroth law states that if each of two bodies are in thermal equilibrium with a third. 24. The third law says that the entropy of an isolated system cannot decrease over time. 177. 122. 34. 211]. 20. 138. 155. 117.1 Fundamentals Definitions Temperature is associated with the motion of molecules within a material. 90.Chapter 1 Introductory heat transfer It is assumed that the reader has had an introductory course in heat transfer of the level of [12.1) ∂t where Q is the heat rate over the surface of the body.2 Energy balance The first law gives a quantitative relation between the heat and work input to a system. then they also are in equilibrium with each other. If there is no work transfer. then ∂T Mc =Q (1.1. 1 We will not distinguish between the specific heat at constant pressure and that a constant volume. 212]. 210. 112. [206. The change in internal energy can be written in terms of a coefficient of specific heat1 as M c dT . Two bodies are in thermal equilibrium with each other if there is no transfer of heat between them. 26.1 1.

For these cases closed-loop control is an appropriate alternative. that is one would have to determine u(t) such that y = yr (t) using the mathematical model of the system alone. There is a comparator which determines the error signal e(t) = e(yr . Sensors that are commonly used are temperature-measuring devices such as thermocouples. The controller designer has to propose a suitable Lc . Internal disturbances may be noise in the measuring or actuating devices or a change in surface heat transfer characteristics due to fouling.3 Linear systems theory The term classical control is often used to refer to theory derived on the basis of Laplace transforms. resistance thermometers or thermistors.

This is usually used in heating or cooling systems in which the heat coming in or going out is reduced to zero when a predetermined temperature is reached and set at a constant value at another temperature. The actuator can be a fan or a pump if the flow rate is to be changed. or a heater if the heating rate is the appropriate variable. if precise output control is not required. the output in effect is then insensitive to changes in input or disturbances. etc. and that is also frequently done.

Another method is Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) control [214] in which t u = Kp e(t) + Ki 0 e(s) ds + Kd de . This is done using feedback from the output. (3. Open-loop control is not usually effective for many systems. where the reference or set value yr is prescribed. the figure actually shows unit feedback. dt (3.3.

Dynamical systems

A dynamical system is a set of differential equations such as dxi = fi (x1 , x2 , . . . , t; λ1 , λ2 , . . . , λp ) for i = 1, . . . , n dt (A.10)

The x1 , . . . , xn s are state variables and the λ1 , . . . , λp are bifurcation parameters. The mapping f : X × Rp → Y is a vector field. If f1 , . . . , fn do not depend on time t, the system is autonomous.

A.4. Dynamical systems

A nonautonomous system can be converted into autonomous one by the change in variable xn+1 = t, from which we can get the additional equation dxn+1 =1 dt (A.11)

We will assume that the solutions of the system are always bounded. The system is conservative if the divergence of the vector field ∂fi /∂xi is zero, and dissipative if it is negative. An attractor of a dissipative dynamical system is the set of {xi } as t → ∞. The critical (or singular, equilibrium or fixed) points, xi , of equation (A.10) are those for which fi (x1 , x2 , . . . , t; λ1 , λ2 , . . . , λp ) = 0 (A.12)

There may be multiple solutions to this algebraic or transcendental equation. Defining a new coordinate x′ = xi − xi that is centered at the critical point, we get the local i form dx′ i (A.13) = fi (x1 − x1 , . . . , xn − xn ) dt Sometimes we will use the notation dxi = g(x1 , . . . , xn ) dt to indicate the local form, the origin being one critical point of this system. A.4.1 Stability (A.14)

The stability of the critical points is of major interest. A critical point is stable if, given an initial perturbation, the solutions tends to it as t → ∞.

If there exists a function V (x1 , . . . , xn ) such that V ≥ 0 and dV /dt ≤ 0, then the origin is globally stable, that is, it is stable to all perturbations, large or small.

The critical point is one possible attractor. There are other time-dependent solutions which can also be attractors in phase space, as indicated in the list below. • Point (steady, time-independent) • Closed curve (limit cycle, periodic) • Torus (periodic or quasi-periodic) • Strange (chaotic) For a given dynamical system, several attractors may co-exist. In this case each attractor has a basin of attraction, i.e. the set of initial conditions that lead to this attractor. A bifurcation is a qualitative change in the solution as the bifurcation parameters λi are changed. A.4.4 One-dimensional systems dx = f (x) dt Example A.1
Consider the linear equation dx = ax + b dt (A.18)

The critical point is x=− On defining x′ = x − x, the local form is obtained as dx′ = ax′ dt We can take one of two approaches. (a) Solving (A.20) b a (A.19)

x′ = x′ eat 0

(A.21)

The critical point is a repeller if a > 0, and an attractor if a < 0. (b) Alternatively, we can multiply equation (A.20) by 2x′ to get dV = 2aV dt (A.22)

where V = x′2 . Since V is always nonnegative, the sign of dV /dt is the sign of a. Thus V will increase with time if a > 0, and decrease if a < 0. In either case we find that the critical point is unstable if a > 0 and stable if a < 0.

Example A.2

where x(i) (i = 1, 2, 3) are the three critical points. The bifurcation diagram is shown in Fig. A.4. (i) Critical point x(1) = 0 To analyze the local stability of x(1) = 0, we obtain the local form dx′ = x′ (λ − λ0 ) − x′3 dt Neglecting the cubic term x′3 , this becomes dx′ = x′ (λ − λ0 ) dt Thus x(1) = 0 is locally stable if λ < λ0 , and unstable if λ > λ0 . To analyze the global stability, equation (A.28) can be written as 1 dV = V (λ − λ0 ) − V 2 2 dt where V = x′2 . For λ < λ0 , V ≥ 0, dV /dt ≤ 0, so that x(1) = 0 is globally stable.
