Insulation in a Cold Room. Calculate the heat loss per m2 of surface area for a temporary insulating wall of a food cold storage room where the outside temperature is 299.9 K and the inside temperature 276.5 K. The wall is composed of 25.4 mm of corkboard having a k of 0.0433 W/m · K.
|A1:||Ans. 39.9 W/m2|
Determination of Thermal Conductivity. In determining the thermal conductivity of an insulating material, the temperatures were measured on both sides of a flat slab of 25 mm of the material and were 318.4 and 303.2 K. The heat flux was measured as 35.1 W/m2. Calculate the thermal conductivity in btu/h · ft · °F and in W/m · K.
