the flow of hot gases is suddenly terminated, and the rod cools by free convection to ambient air at Too = 300 K and by radiation exchange with large surroundings at
Tsur = 300 K. The free convection
coefficient can be expressed as h (W/m2 · K) = C
LlTn, where C = 4.4 W/m2 · K1.188 and n = 0.188. The emissivity of the rod is 0.5. Determine the subsequent thermal response of the rod. Plot the midspan temperature
as a function of cooling time, and determine the time required for the rod to reach a safe-to-touch temperature of 315 K.

Consider the acceleration-grid foil (k = 40 W/m · K, a = 3 X 10-5 m2/s, e= 0.45) of Problem 4.72. Develop an implicit, finite-difference model of the foil, which
can be used for the following purposes.
(a) Assuming the foil to be at a uniform temperature of 300 K when the ion beam source is activated, obtain a plot of the midspan temperature–time his- tory. At
what elapsed time does this point on the foil reach a temperature within 1 K of the steady- state value?

(a) Using a time increment of Llt = 60 s and the
implicit method, find the temperature history of the midplane of the book and determine whether curing will occur (170°C for 5 min).
(b) Following the reduction of the platen temperatures to 15°C (t = 50 min), how long will it take for the midplane of the book to reach 37°C, a safe temper- ature
at which the operator can begin unloading the press?
(c) Validate your program code by using the heating schedule of a sudden change of platen tempera- ture from 15 to 190°C and compare results with those from an
appropriate analytical solution (see Problem 5.46).
