Question

**A pipe is transporting saturated steam at 1 bar (100°C)
. The pipe has an inside diameter of 100 mm with a 9 mm thick wall.
The pipe is mild steel with a thermal conductivity of 80 W m-1 K-1.
Covering the pipe is a 20 mm thick layer of polythene insulation
with a thermal conductivity of 0.04 W m-1 K-1. The convective heat
transfer coefficient of the steam is 513.4 W m-2 K-1. The
convective heat transfer coefficient of the air around the
insulated pipe is 22.9 W m-2 K-1 which is at 22°C. Calculate the
heat lose per unit area (1 m) of the insulated pipe in watts (W) (1
DP). Neglect radiation heat transfer.**

Steam at an average temperature of ?∞= 400°C flows through a
steel pipe. The inner and outer radii of the pipe are r1 = 4 cm and
r2 = 4.5 cm, respectively, and the outer surface of the pipe is
insulated with a layer of 50 mm thick-calcium silicate of thermal
conductivity of k = 0.5 W/m.K, and is maintained at 350 °C. If the
convection heat transfer coefficient on the inner surface of the
pipe is h = 65...

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
conductivity = 43W/mºC). The outside ambient temperature is 20ºC.
The outside convective heat-transfer coefficient is 100 /(m2ºC).
Calculate the overall heat transfer coefficient and the heat loss

Uniform area, heat transfer problem A stove's walls are made up
of a flat inner insulating board 0.01m thick (thermal conductivity:
0.2 W m-1K-1) and a flat outer steel sheet

m-1K-1). A mineral-wool (thermal
conductivity: 0.065 W m-1K-1) is placed
between these sheets. The inside temperature of the wall is 773K,
how thick does the insulation have to be to maintain the outside
wall temperature at 323K ? Assume that the ambient air temperature...

Insulation of steam pipes is an important aspect in industries to
resist the heat loss from the steam pipe to the surrounding. In a
typical steam pipe in an industry is made of steel( k=58w/mk) has
inner diameter of 160mm and outside diameter of 170 mm. The
saturated steam from a boiler flowing through the steam pipe is at
300C while the ambient air is at 50 C. The steel pipe has two
layers of insulation the inner layer(k=0.17w/mc) is...

hot fluid at 230°C flows through a 1-meter pipe of 0.02m outside
radius and 0.015m inside radius. The thermal conductivity of the
pipe is 0.5 W/m.k, and the heat transfer coefficient (hi) inside is
300 W/m2 K. The pipe is located in a room at 30°C, and the heat
transfer coefficient (ho) at the outer surface is 10 W/m2 k.
Calculate the temperature drop (∆T) across the pipe wall.

A thin metallic wall may be constructed using copper (properties

Saturated steam at 1 atm condenses on the outer surface of a
vertical, 100-mm-diameter pipe 1 m long, having a uniform surface
temperature of 94 o C. Estimate the heat transfer rate to the pipe
and the total condensation rate.

A house has a composite wall of wood (exterior) (k = 0.12 W m-1
K -1 , 20 mm thick), fibreglass insulation (k = 0.045 W m-1 K -1 ,
70 mm thick) and plasterboard (interior) (k = 0.25 W m-1 K -1 , 10
