Under steady-state conditions, constant thermophysical properties and uniform heat generation in the walls, the one-dimensional conduction heat transfer equation in radial direction of a pipe can be written as (see Reference by Carslaw, H. S. and J. C. Jaeger ):
where the radial heat flux is positive in the negative radial direction (towards the center of the pipe), Q is uniform heat generation in the pipe walls in W∕m3, and k is pipe wall thermal conductivity in W∕m-C. This differential Eq. (10-1) can be solved for the radial temperature distribution in the pipe wall by specifying the pipe wall temperatures with the inner and outer wall radii as boundary conditions.
