Question

A stainless steel pipe [thermal conductivity = 17 W/(m.C)] is being used to convey heated oil. The inside surface temperature is 13 degrees C. The pipe is 2 cm thick with an inside diameter of 8 cm. The pipe is insulated with 0.04m thick insulation [thermal conductivity = 0.035 W/(m.C)]. The outer insulation temperature is 25 degrees C. Calculate the temperature of the interface between steel and insulation, assume steady-state conditions.

A 2 cm thick steel pipe (thermal conductivity = 43 W/[m.C]) with
6 cm inside diameter is being used to convey steam from a boiler to
process equipment for a distance of 40 m. The inside pipe surface
temperature is 115 degrees C, and the outside pipe surface
temperature is 90 degrees C. Calculate the total heat loss to the
surroundings under steady-state conditions.

A 2.5 cm inside diameter pipe is being used to convey a liquid
food at 80ºC. The inside convective heat transfer coefficient is
10W/(m2ºC). The pipe (0.5 cm thick) is made of steel (thermal

The outside convective heat-transfer coefficient is 100 /(m2ºC).
Calculate the overall heat transfer coefficient and the heat loss
from 1 m length of the pipe.

A pipeline, used for the transport of crude oil, is buried in
the earth (k = 0.52 W/m-K) such that its centerline is a distance
of 1.4 m below the surface. The pipe has an outer diameter of 0.5 m
and is insulated with a layer of cellular glass 100 mm thick. What

flows through the pipe and the surface of the earth is at a...

A flat wall is exposed to an environmental temperature of 38
degrees C. The wall is covered with a layer of insulation 2.5 cm
thick whose thermal conductivity is 1.8 W/(m.K), and the
temperature of the wall on the inside of the insulation is 320
degrees C. The wall loses heat to the environment by convection.
Compute the value of the convection heat transfer coefficient that
must be maintained on the outer surface of the insulation to ensure
that the...

Heat Removal of a Cooling Coil. A cooling coil
of 1.0 ft of 304 stainless-steel tubing having an inside diameter
of 0.25 in. and an outside diameter of 0.40 in. is being used to
remove heat from a bath. The temperature at the inside surface of
the tube is 40 degrees fahrenheit and is 80 degrees fahrenheit on
the outside. The thermal conductivity of 304 stainless steel is a

Water flows through a pipe at an average temperature of
T =50°C. The inner and outer radii of the pipe are
r1 = 6 cm and r2 = 6.5 cm,
respectively. The outer surface of the pipe is wrapped with a thin
electric heater that consumes 300 W per m length of the pipe. The
exposed surface of the heater is heavily insulated so that the
entire heat generated in the heater is transferred to the pipe.
Heat is transferred...
