KNOWN: Ambient, interior and dewpoint temperatures. Vehicle speed and dimensions of
windshield. Heat transfer correlation for external flow.
FIND: Minimum value of convection coefficient needed to prevent condensation on interior surface
of windshield.
SCHEMATIC:
ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state, (2) One-dimensional heat transfer, (3) Constant properties.

COMMENTS: The output of the fan in the automobile’s heater/defroster system must maintain a
velocity for flow over the inner surface that is large enough to provide the foregoing value of i
h. In
addition, the output of the heater must be sufficient to maintain the prescribed value of T,i at this
velocity.

KNOWN: Average frictional shear stress of s
τ
=
0.0625 N/m2 on upper surface of circuit board with
densely packed integrated circuits (ICs)
FIND: Allowable power dissipation from the upper surface of the board if the average surface
temperature of the ICs must not exceed a rise of 25°C above ambient air temperature.
SCHEMATIC:
ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state conditions, (2) The modified Reynolds analogy is applicable, (3)
Negligible heat transfer from bottom side of the circuit board, and (4) Thermophysical properties
required for the analysis evaluated at 300 K,
PROPERTIES: Table A-4, Air (Tf = 300 K, 1 atm): ρ = 1.161 kg/m3, cp = 1007 J/kgK, Pr = 0.707.
ANALYSIS: The power dissipation from the circuit board can be calculated from the convection rate
equation assuming an excess temperature (Ts - T) = 25°C.
