An annealing chamber has a composite wall made of a 17 cm thick firebrick layer (k=1.1W/m 0 C) and a 13 cm thick ordinary brick layer (k=0.70 W/m0C). The inside and outside surface temperatures of the walls are 400 0 C and 450C respectively. Calculate the heat loss from 25 m 2 of furnace wall. Also determine the temperature between the ordinary brick and the fire brick layers. A 10-cm O.D. steam pipe carrying saturated steam at 1373 kPa (1.373 MN/m 2) is lagged to 20 cm diameter with magnesia (k= 0.07 W/mK) and further lagged with laminated asbestos of thermal conductivity of 0.08 W/mK. The whole pipe is further protected by a layer of canvas. If the temperature under the canvas is 20 0 C, find the steam condensed in 12 hours on 150 meters length of pipe.
