1 Heat Conduction of Zinc Specimen Femlab Simulation Measurement Calibration Technique: Effects of Heat Loss Through Specimen Surface Area

2 Experiment Objectives The main objective in this experiment is to measure the effective thermal conductivities of a material within a temperature range of 77K-350K. This will allow us to classify and identify any similarities discovered by the experimental data compared with published data on the specific material. To familiarize ourselves with the concepts and principles that govern similar thermodynamic systems. To gain insight and knowledge of various measurement techniques associated with thermal transport. Also to become familiar with setup and use of various pieces of equipment needed to perform the experiment.

3 Theory and Concepts (2) (Short-Hand Notation) (Conduction along x-direction) These expressions lead to the 2 nd Order Time Dependant Heat Diffusion Differential Equation, which has the following form: (non-linear, 3-D general form) (General Heat Diffusion Relation)

4 Experiment Overview Heat source – Used a resistor with a voltage running through it. Causes heat dissipation in the form of power (i.e  heat flux) Measurement Device (Thermocouples) – Carefully placed 2 thermo-sensors (30mm apart) in order to record data for at least two different spatial locations. LABVIEW – Easily Recorded Measurements using the DAQ Assistant Box GNU Octave (Data Analysis)

5 Data Acquisition LABVIEW Data Acquisition Software Recorded Measurements using a virtual instrument based software. Recorded Measurements using a virtual instrument based software.

9 Application of FEMLAB Problem: Recorded measurements do not account for loss of energy due to convective heat flux through surface of cylinder. Recorded measurements do not account for loss of energy due to convective heat flux through surface of cylinder.Solution: FEMLAB simulation was performed to adjust measurements to include convective energy losses. The results were used to compute the thermal conductivity of the material. FEMLAB simulation was performed to adjust measurements to include convective energy losses.

10 FEMLAB GEOMETRY Sensor 1 was placed at z =.6 in the FEMLAB model of the system. Sensor 2 was placed at z = 1.2, which gives a total separation distance =.6. This will allow us to compare the temperature differences between the two sensors for the two cases: Thermally Insulated Surface Thermally Insulated Surface Heat Loss Effects Through Sides Heat Loss Effects Through Sides 2 Sensor 1 Sensor 2 Actual to Model Scaling: 1 unit = 50mm
