The inner cylinder is maintained at a temperature of 130**Â°**C and emissivity of 0.6. Outer cylinder is maintained at a temperature of 30**Â°**C and emissivity of 0.5. (AU 2012)**

**Given: **r1** **= 60 mm** **= 0.060 m

r2= 120 mm

Find the percentage reduction in heat transfer when a polished aluminums radiation shield of emissivity 0.06 is placed between them. Also find the temperature of the shield. (AU 2010)**

**Given:** T1 = 800Â°C + 273

= 1073 K

T2= 300Â°C + 273

= 573 K

e1= 0.3 e2 = 0.5

Given: D1 = 20 cm = 0.2 mD2 = 0.2 m

T1 = 800Â°C + 273

7. **A long cylindrical heater 30 in diameter is maintained at 700**Â°**C. It has surface emissivity** **of 0.8. The heater is located in a large room whose wall is 35**Â°**C. Find the radiant heat transfer. Find the percentage of reduction in heat transfer if the heater is completely covered by radiation shield (**e**= 0.05) and diameter 40 mm.**

**Given: **Diameter of cylinder D1=30mm=0.030 mm

Temperature T1=700Â°C + 273 = 973 K

Emissivity e1 = 0.8
