Assignment # 4
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. What is the utility of extended surfaces? Give 10 specific and practical examples of use of fin in heat transfer. What are the varies types of fins? List the assumption made while analyzing the heat flow from a finned surfaces. Derive governing differential equation for temperature distribution of constant area extended surface in the following form: = = m2

6. For a constant cross section area fin, obtain the temperature distribution and total heat flow rate under steady state conditions when one end of fin is attached at high temperature and other end of the fin is insulated(fin insulated at tip). 7. For a constant cross section area fin, obtain the temperature distribution and total heat flow rate under steady state conditions when one end of fin is attached at high temperature and heat is dissipate from other end. 8. Develop expression for temperature distribution and total heat flow rate under steady state conditions for an infinitely long fin. 9. Define and derive expression for fin performance and fin efficiency. 10. A fin 30 cm long and 10 mm diameter throughout is made up of steel alloy of thermal conductivity 43 W/m-deg. The fin attached to a plane heated wall at 200 0C temperature, extended into surrounding at 25 0 C and unit surface coefficient of 120 W/m2-deg. Work out the heat flow rate from the fin to surrounding. Assume fin is insulated at tip. 11. A longitudinal copper fin(k = 14 kJ/m-hr-deg) 60 mm long and 5 mm in diameter is exposed to air stream at 20 0 C. The air moving past the fin has uniform convection coefficient h = 80 kJ/m2 hr deg. If the fin has a base temperature of 150 0C, determine the heat given up by the rod and its effectiveness in dissipation heat. 12. A 12.5 mm diameter rod of iron (k=45 W/m-deg)is heated to 260 0C at its base and protrudes into air 35 0C where surface conductance h = 8.5 W/m2-deg. How long must be the rod in order that its end temperature may be computed, with less than 2.75 0C error, by the use of infinite rod equations? What error in heat dissipation is made, at this length, by the use of the infinite rod equation?

A gas turbine blade made of stainless steel (k =32 W/m0C) is 70 mm long ,500 mm2 cross sectional area and 120 mm perimeter .The temperature of the root of blade is 500 0C and it is exposed to the combustion product of the fuel passing from turbine at 8300C.If the film coefficient between the blade and the combustion gases is 300 W/m20C, Determine: (1) The temperature at the middle of blade (2)The rate of heat flow from the blade. 14. Two rods A and B of equal diameter and equal length, but of different materials are used as fins. The both rods are attached to a plain wall maintained at 160 oC, while they are exposed to air at 30 oC. The end temperature of rod A is 100 oC while that of the rod B is 80 oC. If thermal conductivity of rod A is 380 W/mK, calculate the thermal conductivity of rod B. These fins can be assumed as short with end insulated.
