# Using EES or other software investigate the effects of the thermal conductivities of the insulation material and the sheet metal on the thickness of the insulation Let the thermal conductivity

Using EES (or other) software, investigate the effects of the thermal conductivities of the insulation material and the sheet metal on the thickness of the insulation. Let the thermal conductivity vary from 0.02 W/m·K to 0.08 W/m·K for insulation and 10 W/m·K to 400 W/m·K for sheet metal. Plot the thickness of the insulation as the functions of the thermal conductivities of the insulation and the sheet metal, and discuss the results.

Problem. 3–35

Consider a 1.2-m-high and 2-m-wide double-pane window consisting of two 3-mm-thick layers of glass (k = 0.78 W/m·K) separated by a 12-mm-wide stagnant air space (k = 0.026 W/m·K). Determine the steady rate of heat transfer through this double-pane window and the temperature of its inner surface for a day during which the room is maintained at 24°C while the temperature of the outdoors is -25°C. Take the convection heat transfer coefficients on the inner and outer surfaces of the window to be

h1 = 10 W/m2 ·K and h2 = 25 W/m2 ·K, and disregard any heat transfer by radiation.
