If a foam insulation is added to a 4cm outer diameter pipe as shown in the figure, the critical radius of insulation (in cm) is __________ .
A 50 cm diameter pipeline carries hot oil at 30oC and is exposed to a surrounding temperature of -20oC . A special 5cm thick power insulation surrounds the pipe and has a thermal conductivity of 7 × 10-3 W/m-oC, what will be the energy loss from the pipe per meter of length if the pipe is urrounded by a fluid having heat transfer coefficient h = 9 W/m2oC)
Heat is generated steadily in a 3 cm diameter spherical ball. The ball is exposed to ambient air at 26oC with a heat transfer coefficient of 7.5 W/m2-oC. The ball is to be covered with a material of thermal conductivity 0.15 W/m-oC. If the ball surface temperature remains as constant, the thickness of the covering material that will maximize heat generation within the ball, is _________.
A plane wall of 0.2m thickness and 25 W/m-K thermal conductivity is uniformly generating heat within the slab. The slab is exposed to a fluid at 92oC & the convection heat transfer coefficient between the wall and the fluid is 500 W/m2-K. If the uniform volumetric heat generation within the slab is 0.3 MW/m3, the maximum temperature in the wall is
