## 2.4. HEAT SOURCE SYSTEM

The thickness of the wall in the x direction is
2L, and it is assumed that the dimensions in
the other directions are sufficiently large that
the heat flow may be considered as one-
dimensional. The heat genereted per unit
volume is

q
, and we assume that the termal
conductivity does not vary with temperature.

2.4. CYLINDER WITH HEAT SOURCES
'onsider a cylinder of radius 5 with
uniformly distributed heat sources and
constant thermal conductivity. 6f the
cylinder is sufficiently long that the
temperature may be considered a function
of radius only, the appropriate differential
e"uation may be obtained by neglecting
the axial )x-y(, a+imuth )+(, and time-
dependent )t( terms.
