Design Project:

Two Dimensional Transient Heat Conduction of a Hot Gas Flue

Christopher Bill

Kristopher Thomas

Instructor:

Dr. John Hsu

Given Conditions

Initially, the rectangular flue is at a uniform temperature of 25C. The interior is then exposed to

hot gases at 350C and experiences convective heat transfer. The exterior experiences convection

with air at 25C. The flue has a 300mm square cross section and has refractory brick walls that

are 150mm thick. A grid spacing of 50mm is to be utilized in order to find the temperatures of

the 22 nodes at times of 5, 10, 50, and 100 hours after introduction of the flue gas.

Assumptions

Thermal properties can be assumed to be constant given the information provided in the

problem. In addition, transient heat conduction is assumed to be two dimensional since the length

of the chimney is long compared to its cross section. Heat transfer due to radiation can be

considered negligible.

Properties

Thermal conductivity of the refractory brick is given as 0.85 W/mK. The thermal diffusivity is

given as 5.5 x 10 m /s. The convective coefficient of the inside and outside of the wall are given

to be 100 and 5 W/m K respectively.

An iterative loop that used time steps of one hour was implemented to determine when the steady

state (where the change in temperature was less than 0.0001C) would occur, which ended up

being 45 hours.

e) Show the temperatures after reaching steady state in terms of coordinate system, y and

x.

Discussion

It was observed that the nodes closest to the flue had the quickest temperature increase and

experienced the highest steady state temperature with Node 1 reaching 340.2C. The minimum

steady state temperature was at the outside corner of the chimney (Node 22 @ 98.9C). It makes

sense that this point would have the lowest temperature because it is the furthest away from the

flue gas, while also experiencing convection from the outside air. Not to mention it is

experiencing the least conductive heat transfer from nearing nodes because it is not in contact

with 3 sides like the other exterior nodes. This made it significantly colder than the other outside

surface nodes, 20 degrees cooler than the nearest node and about 80 degrees cooler than the

center of the outside walls of the chimney. All of the above is also true for the interior corner

node for opposite reasons. It is closest to the flue with the most nodes surrounding it, leading it to

be the hottest node analyzed.

Conclusion

The analysis of the flue walls was simplified thanks to the the symmetry of a square flue

meaning only one eighth of the geometry was used in calculating node temperatures. This saves

on calculation time and processing resources. It suffices to say that the number of nodes analyzed

has a direct effect on the accuracy of the system being analyzed. More nodes will lead to a much

higher accuracy. The 50mm grid spacing that was implemented is probably about the minimum

that is necessary in order to thoroughly show the temperature gradient in the flue walls. That

being said, it would not be difficult to increase the accuracy of the analysis given the code that is

already in place; nodes would need to be renumbered and program loops adjusted accordingly.

However, at that point, it would be wise to use finite element analysis software such as FE Lab

or Abaqus in order to carry out the simulation as it would yield much better graphical

visualization and allow for easier changes to parameters.
