# ME 415: Computational Fluid Dynamics and Heat Transfer, Spring 2011 Assignment 1: Heat Conduction - I Due Date: 18 February

2011 Notes: 1. For each problem, please provide: (i) the grid detail, (ii) the boundary condition implementation detail, (iii) a well documented code, (iv) the required output (plots/any other such means). 2. Items (i) and (ii) above should be written out on a separate sheet and attached before items (iii) and (iv). 3. If you are using one generalized code for problem solving, please make sure the documentation/annotation in the code is clear, and be sure to point it out in your write-up. 1. Consider a one-dimensional plane wall of thickness 86 mm. The conductivity of the wall material is 0.05 W/m-K. The left face of the wall is exposed to a radiation heat ux of 100 W/m2 and also to a hot uid with temperature 300 o C. Assume a heat transfer coecient of 30 W/m2 -K between the left face and the hot uid. The right face of the wall is exposed to a cold uid with temperature 25 o C. Assume a heat transfer coecient of 10 W/m2 -K between the right face and the cold uid. Solve this problem numerically and compare the results with the analytical solution. Specically, determine and compare the temperatures at the wall faces, and the heat ux leaving the right face. Plot the temperature within the wall. Finally, determine if the heat balance is obeyed (in the numerical solution). You can decide your own grid spacing. Feel free to choose a uniform grid. 2. Consider a one-dimensional composite wall under steady-state conditions. The wall is composed of three materials A, B and C, with the arragement A-B-C (from left to right). Assume all contact resistances negligible. The left face of the wall is exposed to a hot uid at temperature 800 o C, and the heat transfer coecient betweent the hot uid and the left face is 25 W/m2 -K. The length and conductivity information for the three materials is as follows: LA =0.3 m, LB =0.15 m, LC =0.15 m, kA =20 W/m-K, kB =1.5 W/m-K, kC =50 W/m-K. The right face of the wall is at 20 o C. Solve this problem numerically and compare the results with the analytical solution. Specically, determine and compare the temperature at the left wall face. Plot the temperature distribution within the wall. You can decide your own grid spacing (can be uniform). Suggest and implement a method to determine the interface temperatures (in the numerical solution), and compare the results with the analytical values. 3. Consider a one-dimensional slab with conductivity 1 W/m-K. The slab width is 20 cm. The left face of the slab is at 100 o C and the heat ux at the right face is 1 kW/m2 . The slab experiences a volumetric heat generation rate given by S = 1000 5T W/m3 . Determine the steady-state temperature distribution in the slab, for two grid spacings with the requirement that there should be at least 20 CVs in each case. Determine the overall heat balance.
