UNSTEADY STATE HEAT

TRANSFER
Unsteady State Heat Transfer
• Temperatures varies with location and
time.
• Found in many food processing : thermal
process, pasteurization, frying, etc.


• Where r=0 for a slab, n=1 for a cylinder
and r=2 for a sphere (in one dimensional
analysis)

Example….
• Calculate the temperature of tomato juice
(density = 980 kg/m
3
) in a steam-jacketed
hemispherical kettle after 5 min of heating.
The radius of the kettle is 0.5 m. The
convective heat-transfer coefficient in the
steam jacket is 5000 W/(m
2
C). The inside
surface temperature of the kettle is 90
o
C.
The initial temperature of tomato juice is
20
o
C. Assume specific heat of tomato
juice is 3.95 kJ/kg C.
……example
• An experiment was conducted to determine surface convective
heat-transfer coefficient for peas being frozen in an air-blast
freezer. For this purpose, a metal analog of peas was used. The
analog was a solid copper ball with a diameter of 1 cm. A small
hole was drilled to the center of the copper ball, and a
thermocouple junction was located at the center using a high
conductivity of epoxy. The density of copper is 8954 kg.m3, and
its specific heat is 3830 J/KgK. The copper ball (at a uniform
initial temperature of 10 oC) was hung in the path of air flow (at -
40 oC) and the center temperature indicated by the
thermocouple was recorded. The following table lists the
temperatures at one-minute intervals for 14 minutes. Determine
the surface heat transfer coefficient from these data.

Finite Internal and Surface
Resistance to Heat Transfer
• The analytical solution for this case is very
hard and possible for only certain shape.
• The use of chart (Heisslers chart)
• The chart correlates unccomplished
temperature fraction (Ta-T)/(Ta-Ti),
inverse biot number and Fourier number.

For case of food…..
• The fourier number is usually less than 1
because of the low thermal diffusivity of food (α).
• The use of expanded scale of heissler chart
(based on the work of Schneider, 1963).
• The expanded-scale chart use biot number
directly, and the chart is plotted on linier-log
scale (not log linier).
