Temperature distribution in heat exchange pipe

    • Arun Kumar

      HI all,

      I want to know the temperature distribution profile of a complex structure made of steel pipes covered with refractory. Refractory is heated up continuosly by hot air flowing across it. 

      ultimately our goal is to protect my steel pipes from burning to provide sufficient cold air flow through pipes. 

      please guide how to proceed in this case.

      From a physics point of view it's a fairly simple conjugate heat transfer problem. The only issue may be the two fluid paths. There are a few tutorials, and the only other complication is whether radiative heat transfer is needed.
