University Of Texas At Tyler Operations And Supply Chain Management Assignment Help - A plane wall
Question - A plane wall that is insulated on one side (x = 0) is initially at a uniform temperature Ti, when its exposed surface at x = L is suddenly raised to a temperature Ts' (a) Verify that the following equation satisfies the heat equation and boundary conditions: where C) is a constant and a is the thermal diffusivity. (b) Obtain expressions for the heat flux at x = 0 and x = L. (c) Sketch the temperature distribution T(x) at t = 0, at t ? 8, and at an intermediate time. Sketch the variation with time of the heat flux at x = L, qL (t). (d) What effect does a have on the thermal response of the material to a change in surface temperature?
