Conduction Conduction is the process whereby heat is transferred directly through a material, any bulk motion of the material playing no role in the transfer. Those materials that conduct heat well are called thermal conductors, while those that conduct heat poorly are known as thermal insulators. Most metals are excellent thermal conductors, while wood, glass, and most plastics are common thermal insulators. The free electrons in metals are responsible for the excellent thermal conductivity of metals. R. Shanthini May 2010

**Mechanisms of Heat Transfer**

Conduction is the flow of heat by direct contact between a warmer and a cooler body. Convection is the flow of heat carried by moving gas or liquid. (warm air rises, gives up heat, cools, then falls) Radiation is the flow of heat without need of an intervening medium. (by infrared radiation, or light) R. Shanthini May 2010

**Convection currents are set up when a pan of water is heated.**

Convection is the process in which heat is carried from place to place by the bulk movement of a fluid (gas or liquid). Convection currents are set up when a pan of water is heated. R. Shanthini May 2010

**Convection: Newton’s Law of Cooling**

24
**Convection: Newton’s Law of Cooling**

Flowing fluid at Tfluid Heated surface at Tsurface Q . conv. Tsurface – Tfluid = 1/(hA) Convective heat resistance (in k/W) R. Shanthini May 2010

25
Example 4 The convection heat transfer coefficient between a surface at 50oC and ambient air at 30oC is 20 W/m2.K. Calculate the heat flux leaving the surface by convection. Solution: Use Newton’s Law of cooling : Q . conv. = h A (Tsurface – Tfluid) Flowing fluid at Tfluid = 30oC = (20 W/m2.K) x A x (50-30)oC Heated surface at Tsurface = 50oC Heat flux leaving the surface: . Q conv. A = 20 x 20 = 400 W/m2 h = 20 W/m2.K R. Shanthini May 2010

26
Example 5 Air at 300°C flows over a flat plate of dimensions 0.50 m by 0.25 m. If the convection heat transfer coefficient is 250 W/m2.K, determine the heat transfer rate from the air to one side of the plate when the plate is maintained at 40°C. Solution: Use Newton’s Law of cooling : Q . conv. = h A (Tsurface – Tfluid) Flowing fluid at Tfluid = 300oC Heated surface at Tsurface = 40oC = 250 W/m2.K x m2 x ( )oC = W/m2 h = 250 W/m2.K A = 0.50x0.25 m2 Heat is transferred from the air to the plate. R. Shanthini May 2010

27
**Forced Convection In forced convection over external surface:**

In forced convection, a fluid is forced by external forces such as fans. In forced convection over external surface: Tfluid = the free stream temperature (T∞), or a temperature far removed from the surface In forced convection through a tube or channel: Tfluid = the bulk temperature R. Shanthini May 2010

28
Free Convection In free convection, a fluid is circulated due to buoyancy effects, in which less dense fluid near the heated surface rises and thereby setting up convection. In free (or partially forced) convection over external surface: Tfluid = (Tsurface + Tfree stream) / 2 In free or forced convection through a tube or channel: Tfluid = (Tinlet + Toutlet) / 2 R. Shanthini May 2010

**Change of Phase Convection**

Change-of-phase convection is observed with boiling or condensation . It is a very complicated mechanism and therefore will not be covered in this course. R. Shanthini May 2010

33
**Example 6 . Q = U A (TA – TB) = U A (120 – 35) What is UA?**

Steam at 120oC flows in an insulated pipe. The pipe is mild steel (k = 45 W/m K) and has an inside radius of 5 cm and an outside radius of 5.5 cm. The pipe is covered with a 2.5 cm layer of 85% magnesia (k = 0.07 W/m K). The inside heat transfer coefficient (hi) is 85 W/m2 K, and the outside coefficient (ho) is 12.5 W/m2 K. Determine the heat transfer rate from the steam per m of pipe length, if the surrounding air is at 35oC. Solution: Start with Q . = U A (TA – TB) = U A (120 – 35) What is UA? R. Shanthini May 2010

34
**Example 6 continued 1/UA = 1/(hAAi) + ln(ro/ri) / 2πkL + … + 1/(hBAo)**

1/UA = 1/(85Ain) + ln(5.5/5) / 2π(45)L + ln(8/5.5) / 2π(0.07)L + 1/(12.5Aout) Ain = 2π(0.05)L and Aout = 2π(0.08)L 1/UA = ( ) / 2πL R. Shanthini May 2010

**Mechanisms of Heat Transfer**

Conduction is the flow of heat by direct contact between a warmer and a cooler body. Convection is the flow of heat carried by moving gas or liquid. (warm air rises, gives up heat, cools, then falls) Radiation is the flow of heat without need of an intervening medium. (by infrared radiation, or light) R. Shanthini May 2010

37
Radiation Radiation is the process in which energy is transferred by means of electromagnetic waves of wavelength band between 0.1 and 100 micrometers solely as a result of the temperature of a surface. Heat transfer by radiation can take place through vacuum. This is because electromagnetic waves can propagate through empty space. R. Shanthini May 2010

38
**The Stefan–Boltzmann Law of Radiation**

Q t = ε σ A T4 ε = emissivity, which takes a value between 0 (for an ideal reflector) and 1 (for a black body). σ = x 10-8 W/m2.K4 is the Stefan-Boltzmann constant A = surface area of the radiator T = temperature of the radiator in Kelvin. R. Shanthini May 2010

39
**Why is the mother shielding her cub?**

Ratio of the surface area of a cub to its volume is much larger than for its mother. R. Shanthini May 2010

40
**What is the Sun’s surface temperature?**

The sun provides about 1000 W/m2 at the Earth's surface. Assume the Sun's emissivity ε = 1 Distance from Sun to Earth = R = 1.5 x 1011 m Radius of the Sun = r = 6.9 x 108 m R. Shanthini May 2010

41
**What is the Sun’s surface temperature?**

Q t = ε σ A T4 (4 π 6.92 x 1016 m2) = x 1018 m2 (4 π 1.52 x 1022 m2)(1000 W/m2) = x 1026 W 2.83 x 1026 W T4 = (1) (5.67 x 10-8 W/m2.K4) (5.98 x 1018 m2) ε σ T = 5375 K R. Shanthini May 2010

42
If object at temperature T is surrounded by an environment at temperature T0, the net radioactive heat flow is: Q t = ε σ A (T4 - To4 ) Temperature of the radiating surface Temperature of the environment R. Shanthini May 2010

43
Example 7 What is the rate at which radiation is emitted by a surface of area 0.5 m2, emissivity 0.8, and temperature 150°C? Solution: [( ) K]4 Q t = ε σ A T4 0.5 m2 0.8 5.67 x 10-8 W/m2.K4 Q = (0.8) (5.67 x 10-8 W/m2.K4) (0.5 m2) (423 K)4 t = 726 W R. Shanthini May 2010

44
**Example 8 Q = ε σ A (T4 - To4 ) t Q t Solution: [(273+25) K]4**

If the surface of Example 7 is placed in a large, evacuated chamber whose walls are maintained at 25°C, what is the net rate at which radiation is exchanged between the surface and the chamber walls? Solution: Q t = ε σ A (T4 - To4 ) [(273+25) K]4 [( ) K]4 Q = (0.8) x (5.67 x 10-8 W/m2.K4) x (0.5 m2) x [(423 K)4 -(298 K)4 ] t = 547 W R. Shanthini May 2010

45
Example 8 continued Note that 547 W of heat loss from the surface occurs at the instant the surface is placed in the chamber. That is, when the surface is at 150oC and the chamber wall is at 25oC. With increasing time, the surface would cool due to the heat loss. Therefore its temperature, as well as the heat loss, would decrease with increasing time. Steady-state conditions would eventually be achieved when the temperature of the surface reached that of the surroundings. R. Shanthini May 2010

Under steady state operation, a 50 W incandescent light bulb has a surface temperature of 135°C when the room air is at a temperature of 25°C. If the bulb may be approximated as a 60 mm diameter sphere with a diffuse, gray surface of emissivity 0.8, what is the radiant heat transfer from the bulb surface to its surroundings? Q t = ε σ A (T4 - To4 ) Solution: [(273+25) K]4 [( ) K]4 Q = (0.8) x (5.67 x 10-8 J/s.m2.K4) x [π x (0.06) m2] x [(408 K)4 -(298 K)4 ] t = 10.2 W (about 20% of the power is dissipated by radiation) R.

A steel pipeline (inside diameter = mm; outside diameter = mm) contains saturated steam at 121.1oC. The line is insulated with 25.4 mm of asbestos. Assume that the inside surface temperature of the metal wall is at 121.1oC and the outer surface of the insulation is at 26.7oC. Taking the average value of ksteel as 45 W/m.K and that of kasbestos as W/m.K, calculate the following: (a) Heat loss for 30.5 m of pipe length [10 marks] (b) Mass (in kg) of steam condensed per hour in the pipe due to the heat loss [10 marks] Additional data given on the next slide: R.

**Critical Radius of Insulation**

To r Pipe Insulation ro Ti ri Q . Ti – To = [ln(ro/ri)] /2πkPL + [ln(r/ro)] /2πkIL + 1/hairA Pipe resistance could be neglected A = 2 π r L R. Shanthini May 2010

**Critical Radius of Insulation**

Q . Ti – To = [ln(r/ro)] /2πkIL + 1/(hair 2πrL) 2π L ( Ti – To) = [ln(r/ro)] /kI + 1/(hair r) Convective resistance Insulation resistance Increasing r increases insulation resistance and decreases heat transfer. Increasing r decreases convective resistance and increases heat transfer. R. Shanthini May 2010

**Critical Radius of Insulation**

Q . d /dr = 0 at the critical radius of insulation, which leads to rcr = kI / hair If the outer radius of the pipe (ro) < rcr and if insulation is added to the pipe, heat losses will first increase and go through a maximum at the insulation radius of rcr and then decrease. If the outer radius of the pipe (ro) > rcr and if insulation is added to the pipe, heat losses will continue to decrease. R. Shanthini May 2010
