# A cold store has a wall comprising 11 cm of brick on the outside, then 7.5 cm of concrete and then 10 cm of cork. The mean temperature within the store is maintained at -18°C and the mean temperature of the outside surface of the wall is 18°C. Calculate the rate of heat transfer through the wall. The appropriate thermal conductivities are for brick, concrete and cork, respectively 0.69, 0.76 and 0.043 J m-1 s-1 °C-1. Determine also the temperature at the interfaces between the concrete and cork layers, and the brick and concrete layers.

Calculate the rate of heat transfer through the wall. The appropriate thermal conductivities are for brick,
concrete and cork, respectively 0.69, 0.76 and 0.043 J m-1 s-1 °C-1.
Determine also the temperature at the interfaces between the concrete and cork layers, and the brick and
concrete layers.
