## Heat Transfer Miscellaneous

#### Heat-Transfer

1. Two infinite parallel plates are placed at a certain distance apart. An infinite radiation shield is inserted between the plates without touching any of them to reduce heat exchange between the plates. Assume that the emissivities of plates and radiation shield are equal. The ratio of the net heat exchange between the plates with and without the shield is

1.  qwith shields = 1 qwithout shields n + 1

here, n = 1
 q = 1 qwithout shields 2

##### Correct Option: A

 qwith shields = 1 qwithout shields n + 1

here, n = 1
 q = 1 qwithout shields 2

1. A double pipe counter flow heat exchanger transfers heat between two water streams. Tube side water at 19 litre/s is heated frim 10°C to 38°C. Shell side water at 25 litre/s is entering at 46°C Assume constant properties of water, density is 1000 kg/m3 and specific heat is 4186 J/kgK. The LMTD (in °C) is ____.

1. Given: ṁh = 25 L/S; Th,i = 46°C, Th,o =?
c = 19 L/S; Tc,i = 10°C, Tc,o = 38°C
ρ = 1000 kg/m33, C = 4186 J/kg.k
Energy balance, ṁc = C(Tc,o – Tc,i) = mn C(Th,i – Th,o)
19 (38 – 10) = 25 (46 – Th,o)
Th,o = 24.72 °C

 LMTD = θ1 - θ2 ln θ1 θ2

θ1 = Th,i – Tc,o = 46 – 38 = 8 °C
θ2 = Th,o – Tc,i = 24.72 – 10 = 14.72
 LMTD = 8 - 14.72 = 11.0206°C ln 8 14.72

##### Correct Option: A

Given: ṁh = 25 L/S; Th,i = 46°C, Th,o =?
c = 19 L/S; Tc,i = 10°C, Tc,o = 38°C
ρ = 1000 kg/m33, C = 4186 J/kg.k
Energy balance, ṁc = C(Tc,o – Tc,i) = mn C(Th,i – Th,o)
19 (38 – 10) = 25 (46 – Th,o)
Th,o = 24.72 °C

 LMTD = θ1 - θ2 ln θ1 θ2

θ1 = Th,i – Tc,o = 46 – 38 = 8 °C
θ2 = Th,o – Tc,i = 24.72 – 10 = 14.72
 LMTD = 8 - 14.72 = 11.0206°C ln 8 14.72

1. For a heat exchanger, ∆Tmax is the maximum temperature difference and ∆Tmin is the minimum temperature difference between the two fluids. LMTD is the log mean temperature difference. Cmin and Cmax are the minimum and the maximum heat capacity rates. The maximum possible heat transfer (Qmax) between the two fluids is

1. The temperature difference is not for a given fluid but across the fluids and maximum heat transfer occurs for Cmin and the temperature difference is equal to (Thi - Tci )

##### Correct Option: B

The temperature difference is not for a given fluid but across the fluids and maximum heat transfer occurs for Cmin and the temperature difference is equal to (Thi - Tci )

1. Saturated steam at 100°C condenses on the outside of a tube. Cold enters the tube at 20°C and exits at 50°C. The value of the Log Mean Temperature Difference (LMTD) is ______°C.

1. Here Tci → cold fluid which enters the tube (temperature)
Tco → cold fluid which exits at tube (temperature)
θ1 = Thi – Tci = 100 – 20 = 80 °C
θ2 = Tho – Tco = 100 – 50 = 50 °C

 θim = θ1 - θ2 ln θ1 θ2

 θim = 80° - 50° = 63.83 °C ln 80 50

##### Correct Option: B

Here Tci → cold fluid which enters the tube (temperature)
Tco → cold fluid which exits at tube (temperature)
θ1 = Thi – Tci = 100 – 20 = 80 °C
θ2 = Tho – Tco = 100 – 50 = 50 °C

 θim = θ1 - θ2 ln θ1 θ2

 θim = 80° - 50° = 63.83 °C ln 80 50

1. Hot and cold fluids enter a parallel flow double t ube heat exchanger at 100 °C and 15 °C, respectively. The heat capacity rates of hot and cold fluids are Ch = 2000 W/K and Cc = 1200 W/ K, respectively. If the outlet temperature of the cold fluid is 45 °C, the log mean temperature difference (LMTD) of the heat exchanger is _____ K (round off to two decimal places).

1. Hot fluid: (ṁ Cp)h = 2000 W/K
Thi = 100 °C
Cold fluid: (ṁ Cp)c = 1200 W/K
Tci = 15 °C, Tco = 45 °C
(ṁ Cp)h (Thi - Tho) = (ṁ Cp)c (Tco - Tci)
⇒ 2000 × (100 - Tho) = 1200 (45 - 15)
⇒ Tho = 82 °C
(∆Ti) = Thi - Tci = 100 - 15 = 85 °C
(∆To) = Tho - Tco = 82 - 45 = 37 °C

 (LMTD)Parallel = 85° - 37° = 57.71 °C or K ln 85 37

##### Correct Option: D

Hot fluid: (ṁ Cp)h = 2000 W/K
Thi = 100 °C
Cold fluid: (ṁ Cp)c = 1200 W/K
Tci = 15 °C, Tco = 45 °C
(ṁ Cp)h (Thi - Tho) = (ṁ Cp)c (Tco - Tci)
⇒ 2000 × (100 - Tho) = 1200 (45 - 15)
⇒ Tho = 82 °C
(∆Ti) = Thi - Tci = 100 - 15 = 85 °C
(∆To) = Tho - Tco = 82 - 45 = 37 °C

 (LMTD)Parallel = 85° - 37° = 57.71 °C or K ln 85 37
