Question: 2 consider steady onedimensional heat conduction in a pin fin...

Question details

2. Consider steady one-dimensional heat conduction in a pin fin of constant diameter D with constant thermal conductivity. The fin is losing heat by convection to the ambient air at T.o with a convection coefficient of h, and by radiation to the surrounding surfaces at an average temperature of Tsurr The nodal network of the fin consists of nodes 0 (at the base), 1 (in the middle), and 2 (at the fin tip) with uniform nodal spacing of Ax. Using the energy balance approach, obtain the discretized equations of this problem to determine T1 and T2 for the specified temperature To at the fin base and negligible heat transfer at the fin tip.
