Problem 3.9

A nuclear fuel element of thickness 2L is covered with a steel cladding of thickness b. Heat generated within the nuclear fuel at a rate q . is removed by a fluid at T, which adjoins one surface and is characterized by a convection coefficient h. The other surface is well insulated, and the fuel and steel have thermal conductivities of k and ks, respectively. (a) Obtain an equation for the temperature distribution T(x) in the nuclear fuel. Express your results in terms of q . , k, L, b, ks, h, and T. (b) Sketch the temperature distribution T(x) for the entire system
