In this work the temperature distribution in a vertical storage tank fed at its top with warmer fluid at constant flow rate is investigated. The flow rate is considered to be so small that laminar flow conditions are established. The temperature of the admitted fluid is allowed to vary with time where step and ramp time functions are used in this work. A rigorous analytical solution is obtained which describes the temperature as function of vertical depth and time. Graphical representation of… Expand
