Use the following data to plot the temperature distribution

in a cylindrical fuel rod for a) a linear heat generation rate of 5 kW/ft and

b) a linear heat generation rate of 15 kW/ft. Data: Fuel diameter = 0.377 in,

Clad inside diameter = 0.388 in, Clad outside diameter = 0.44 in, fuel thermal

conductivity = 1 Btu/h·ft·F, cladding thermal conductivity = 13 Btu/h·ft·F, gap

heat transfer coefficient = 1000 Btu/h·ft2 ·F. Heat transfer

coefficient to coolant is 6000 Btu/h·ft2 ·F and coolant temperature

is 575 F. The fuel has a central hole but no coolant flows in the central hole.

The hole has
