Question: 3 a cylindrical pipe with an internal diameter of 36...

Question details

3) A cylindrical pipe with an internal diameter of 36 mm, wall thickness of 2 mm and thermal conductivity of 14.2 W m1 K1, is insulated by a 10 mm layer of lagging with a conductivity of 0.050 W m K1. This system is used to transport a liquid at a temperature of 6°C with a convective heat transfer coefficient of 400 W m2 K1. The air surrounding the insulated pipe s at a temperature of 23°C and has a convective heat transfer coefficient of 6 W m2 K (a) Calculate the heat flux per metre of insulated pipe. You may use either the resistance method or the overall heat transfer coefficient (U) method.
