This project is aimed for thermally analyzing stress and strain on cover plate of galvanizing bath tub at Bridge & Roof co. (I) Ltd in order to maintain 450C in bath tub. Along with analysis part, cover plate shape was modified due to its continuous use & prevailing conditions at the workshop. The cover plate consist of insulating materials compacted to retain the heat in the bath tub. The thermal convection of air is less than thermal resistance of insulating materials used, thus heat loss is negligible. Thermal convection (air) = 0.0579 w/ (m k) Thermal Resistance (Insulator) = 7.046 w/ (m k). Thermal analysis report show, at 450C. Deformation is effecting end portion = 2-3 mm. Stress & Strain at that portion is also low = 0.1-0.3 Mpa. Heat transfer of air is more than insulating materials. Thus, Heat transfer rate of Insulating materials being low they dont conduct heat from the bath tub to the atmosphere. So, temperature of the bath tub is maintained. QA = 1806.25 W, Heat transfer rate of Air by convection QI = 270.43 W, Heat transfer rate of Insulation materials
