##### A generous amount of gel is applied to the surface of the window of an ultrasound...

A generous amount of gel is applied to the surface of the window of an ultrasound probe prior to its use. The window is made of a polycarbonate material of density ρ = 1200 kg/m3, thermal conductivity k = 0.2 W/m · K, and specific heat cp = 1200 J/kg · K. The probe is initially at a temperature of Ti = 20°C. To ensure that the gel remains adhered to the probe until the probe is brought into contact with the patient's skin, its temperature-dependent viscosity must not fall below a critical value. This corresponds to a requirement that the maximum gel temperature remain below 12°C prior to making contact with the patient. Determine the required initial gel temperature. The thermal conductivity, density, and specific heat of the gel may be assumed to be those of liquid water.

The correct method is to use the Surface Convection of Transient Conduction (Case 3 in Theodore Bergman, Adrienne Lavine 8th edition - Page 289, Equation 5.66)

Hot water from a boiler of power plant are discharged through a 0.2-m-diameter, thin-walled pipe with a velocity of 3.5 m/s. The pipe passes through a room whose air temperature is 3°C and the exterior surface of the pipe is uninsulated and pipe length is 30 m.

(a) At a position in the pipe where the mean water temperature is 40°C, determine the heat loss and the pipe wall temperature.

(b) If the pipe is covered with a 20-mm-thick layer of insulation (k = 0.5 W/m K) what are the pipe wall temperature, the outer surface temperature, and the heat loss?

Develop and explain each step the general equation of heat transfer by conduction in a constructive way starting from an element general differential in the cartesian coordinate system and then reduce to get:
1) Laplace's equation (in R3)
Δ? = 0
2) The Poisson equation (with constant thermal conductivity ?)
Δ? + ? '''= 0

Δ is the Laplacian operator and ? ''' is a source term.

Note: start the analysis from a differential element with volume ??????. Make a energy balance over this volume considering that it can increase if temperature in time according to its thermal capacity. Give more generality to the model assuming there is a source term ? ''' which can be a source that produces thermal energy or consume it.

##### Fully developed (both hydrodynamic and thermal) laminar flow is pushed through a thin-walled circular pipe of...

Fully developed (both hydrodynamic and thermal) laminar flow is pushed through a thin-walled circular pipe of diameter 13 mm. The fluid flows through the pipe at a velocity of 0.1 m/sec, has a density of 1000 kg/m^3, a dynamic viscosity of 855 x 10^-6 Pa-sec, a specific heat of 4000 J/kg-K, a Prandtl number of 8, and a thermal conductivity of 0.613 W/(m-K).

The outside of the pipe is subjected to uniform cross flow where the free-stream velocity is 5 m/sec, the density is 1 kg/m^3, the dynamic viscosity is 180 x 10^-7 Pa-sec, the Prandtl number is 0.7, the specific heat is 1000 J/(kg-K), and the thermal conductivity is 0.02 W/(m-K).

The pipe (remember the flow is fully developed everywhere) is 10 m long and is wrapped with a thin heater that is generating uniform flux around the periphery of the pipe.

A) What is the specific thermal resistance (K-m^2/W) at a point 5 m into the pipe from the interior surface of the wall to the mean fluid temperature?

B) Using the conditions outlined above for the isoflux pipe in cross-flow, what is the specific thermal resistance (K-m^2/W) from the outside surface of the pipe (or thin heater surface if you want to think of it like that) to the free stream cross-flow fluid?
