Nature and Rationale of Extended Surfaces

- An extended surface (also know as a combined conduction-convection system
- or a fin) is a solid within which heat transfer by conduction is assumedto be
- one dimensional, while heat is also transferred by convection (and/or
- radiation) from the surface in a direction transverse to that of conduction.

- If heat is transferred from the surface to the fluid by convection, what
- surface condition is dictated by the conservation of energy requirement?

- Why is heat transfer by conduction in the x-direction not, in fact, one-
dimensional?

- How does vary with x?

They are particularly beneficial when is small,

as for a gas and natural convection.

- What is the actual functional dependence of the temperature distribution in
- the solid?

- If the temperature distribution is assumed to be one-dimensional, that is,
- T=T(x) , how should the value of T be interpreted for any x location?

- When may the assumption of one-dimensional conduction be viewed as an
excellent approximation?

The thin-fin approximation.

- Extended surfaces may exist in many situations but are commonly used as
- fins to enhance heat transfer by increasing the surface area available for
- convection (and/or radiation).

- Some typical fin configurations:

Straight fins of (a) uniform and (b) non-uniform cross sections; (c) annular

fin, and (d) pin fin of non-uniform cross section.

A very long rod 5 mm in diameter has one end maintained at 100 ºC. The surface of the rod exposed to ambient air at 25 ºC with a convection heat transfer coefficient of 100 W/m2 K.

1. Determine the temperature distributions along rods constructed from pure copper, 2024 aluminum alloy, and type AISI 316 stainless steel. What are the corresponding heat losses from the rods?

2. Estimate how long the rods must be for the assumption of infinite length to yield accurate estimate of the heat loss.

Comments:

The mL 2.65 was based on heat loss. If the requirement is to predict the T distribution accurately, a larger mL value (4.6) is needed. It was based on exp(-mL)<0.01.

3.126Turbine blades mounted to a rotating disc in a gas turbine engine are exposed to a gas stream that is at T=1200 ºC and maintains a convection coefficient of h=250 W/m2 K over the blade. The blades, which are fabricated from Inconel, k 20 W/m K, have a length of L=50 mm. The blade profile has a uniform cross-sectional area of A=6xl0-4m2 and a perimeter of P =110 mm. A proposed blade-cooling scheme, which involves routing air through the supporting disc, is able to maintain the base of each blade at a temperature of T = 300 ºC.

(a). If the maximum allowable blade temperature is 1050 ºC and the blade tip may be assumed to be adiabatic, is the proposed cooling scheme satisfactory?

(b) For the proposed cooling scheme, what is the rate at which heat is transferred from each blade to the coolant?

Problem 3.126: Assessment of cooling scheme for gas turbine blade.

Determination of whether blade temperatures are less

than the maximum allowable value (1050°C) for

prescribed operating conditions and evaluation of blade

cooling rate.

Schematic:

Assumptions: (1) One-dimensional, steady-state conduction in blade, (2) Constant k, (3)

Adiabatic blade tip, (4) Negligible radiation.

Analysis: Conditions in the blade are determined by Case B of Table 3.4.

(a) With the maximum temperature existing at x = L, Eq. 3.80 yields

From Table B.1 (or by calculation), Hence,

and, subject to the assumption of an adiabatic tip, the operating conditions are acceptable.

Eq. 3.81 and Table B.1 yield

Hence,

Comments: Radiation losses from the blade surface contribute to reducing the blade

temperatures, but what is the effect of assuming an adiabatic tip condition? Calculate

the tip temperature allowing for convection from the gas.
