Extended Surface Heat Transfer (SMT-HT-33)

availability: in stock

Specifications:
A small scale bench top accessory designed to
measure the temperature profile and heat transfer
along a horizontal extended surface (cylindrical pin).
A small diameter uniform rod is heated at one end
and heat flowing along the rod by conduction is lost
to the surroundings by a combination of natural
convection and radiation. The resulting heat
transfer gives a temperature profile that may be
investigated and predicted by conventional analysis.
The apparatus consists of a solid cylindrical matt
black brass bar of 10mm diameter and effective
length of 350mm supported in a frame and heated
at one end. At intervals of 50mm from the heated
end are eight thermocouples recording the surface
temperature so that a temperature profile along the
bar may be developed. An additional thermocouple
records the ambient temperature.
