Heat Transfer Questions & Answers  
Question by Student 201427135
Professor, I have a question.
A5Q2, the question is "What is the rate of heat transfer from the bearing, and how much power is needed to rotate the journal?"
Does the rate of heat transfer from the bearing mean rate of heat transfer at journal ? or at bearing?
If I took at journal, it's perfectly same with answer but at bearing, it's not. But they said there is no heat transfer into journal. So I'm really wondering. Thank you.
I don't understand your question. As written in the problem statement there is no heat transfer to the journal.

Professor, i have a question in couette flow. Is the couette flow assumed to be a laminar flow? in class, we din't consider Reynolds numbers. If the couette flow is the turbulent flow, should other conditions be considered?
Couette flow is laminar generally because the short distance between the plates makes it difficult for turbulent eddies to form. In this course, always assume Couette flow is laminar. Other types of viscous flows can be either laminar or turbulent as we will see shortly.

I have question about A5Q2-b. When I calculate the heat transfer from the bearing, I took Area term as bearing’s area. And I took Area term for power as journal’s area. Then, these results are not same. You neglected 0.25mm? Or any problem for my calculation process?
If you unroll the bearing into $xy$ coordinates, you have to give the same area to the bearing and the journal: otherwise this wouldn't be consistent. If you don't unroll the bearing and solve it in cylindrical coordinates, then you should use two different areas for the bearing and the journal.
