This educational unit is designed to allow trainees to study practically radial and liner heat conduction in solids, by investigating the temperature profile and thermal conductivity through various materials supplied with the trainer. The trainer is provided with a software to display measurements and graphs.

                                     
  • The trainer consists of the linear conduction setup, radial conduction setup, control panel and workpieces of different materials through which heat conduction is studied.
  • The linear and radial conduction setups are externally isolated containers that can be opened to fix a workpiece then closed strictly to avoid heat transfer to or from the setup.
  • Each conduction setup is supplied with cooling water inlet and outlet to cool the setup body after experimentation.
  • Each conduction setup is also supplied with a heater inside it and pressure sensors to measure the temperature distribution in the setup to get the temperature profiles and heat conductivity.
  • For the linear heat conduction setup, the temperature sensors are distributed along the setup body as a queue, while the temperature sensors are distributed almost as a circular pattern.
  • The control panel is divided into linear and radial conduction control panels. Each panel contains heater power socket, heater ON/OFF switch, heater power control knob and heater power and temperature digital displays, and
  • The control panel is also supplied with nine digital displays to display the readings of the pressure sensors inserted in the linear and radial conduction setups.
  • Each temperature sensor has a probe to be connected to the socket below each temperature digital display in order to display the sensor measurement.
  • Also. each sensor probe has a sticky batch that indicates to which digital display the sensor should be connected.
  • The control panel includes the trainer ON/OFF switch, emergency switch and linear/radial selection switch.
  • The trainer is supplied with a water valve to be connected to an external water source to cool the heat conduction setups.
  • The educational unit is supplied with three workpieces made from stainless steel and brass with various dimensions to be fixed in the heat conduction setups and perform experiments.
  • The trainer is provided with a software to display measurements and use them for calculations, get results and plot graphs automatically.
  • The workpieces are stored in the trainer drawer.
