problem 1: A reactor wall 320 mm thick is made up of inner layer of fire brick (k = 0.84 W/mK) covered with a layer of insulation (k = 0.16 W/mK). The reactor operates at a temperature of 1325oC and the ambient temperature of 25o C. Determine (a) thickness of fire brick and insulation which gives minimum heat loss. find out the heat loss presuming that the insulating material has a maximum temperature of 1200o C at the interface.

problem 2: A furnace wall is made up of three layers of thickness 250 mm, 100 mm and 150 mm with thermal conductivities of 1.65 W/moC, k2 and 0.2 W/moC respectively. The inside is exposed to gases at 1250oC, with a convection coefficient of 25 W/m2 oC and inside surface temperature is at 1100oC, the outside surface is exposed to air at 25o C with
convection coefficient of 12 W/m2oC. Determine

i) The unknown thermal conductivity (k2).
ii) The overall heat transfer coefficient. 
iii) All surface temperatures.

problem 4: A hollow sphere of pure iron contains a liquid chemical mixture which releases 30 kW of energy. The I.D and O.D of the sphere are 15 cm and 30 cm respectively. If the outside temperature of the sphere is 40o C, determine the temperature at a location 2.5 cm away from the outer surface. Assume k = 70 W/m K.

problem 5: An electric current is passed through a composite wall made up of two layers. First layer is steel of 10 cm thickness and second layer is brass of 8 cm thickness. The outer surface temperature of steel and brass are maintained at 120o C and 65oC respectively.

Assuming that the contact between two slab is perfect and the heat generation is 1,65.000 W/m3. Determine (i) Heat flux through the outer surface of brass slab (ii) Interface temperature.

i) Heat generated.

ii) Temperature at the centre of the surface.
