Heat Transfer Engineering | Thermodynamics
Reference: Incropera Fundamentals of Heat and Mass Transfer, Frank P. Incropera and David P. DeWitt
Known Design Data: Size (thickness) of insulated encluosure walls and inside and external surface temperatures
Find: Thickness of walls (insulation material) required to maintain heat load.
- Perfectly insulated bottom
- Steady -state conditions
- Constant material properties
- One-dimensional conduction through 5 walls of area (A)
Note: The wall intersection or corners will cause local departures from one-dimensional conduction and a larger heat loss.
Data within boxes variables and can be modified.
