Heat Transfer Through Composite Wall
The setup consists of a heater sandwiched between two sets of slabs.
Three types of slabs are provided on either sides of heater, which forms
a composite structure. A small hand press frame is provided to ensure
the perfect contact between the slabs. A variac is provided for varying
the input to the heater and Digital Voltmeter and Digital Ammeter
display the heat input. Heat produced by heater flows axially on both
the sides. Temperature Sensors are embedded between interfaces of slabs
to determine the temperature gradient. The experiment can be conducted
at various values of input and calculation can be made accordingly
- To determine total thermal resistance and thermal conductivity of composite wall
- To plot temperature gradient along composite wall structure
- Electricity Supply: 1Phase, 220 V AC, 2 Amp.
