Equivalent Thermal Properties of Egg

  1. May 22, 2007 #1
    I am trying to find out the temperature at the centre of egg at 5 to 7 Deg C, therefore I am solving conduction equation. I am treating egg as ellipsoid. An egg consists of shell, albumen and yolk. Can we represent egg with single entity for thermal analysis, ie. with equivalent thermal conductivity, density and specific heat. Thermal properties of shell, albumen and yolk are known.
    Plz advise me at

    The math stuff is way beyond me, but may I ask why you don't just insert a thermal probe and take a direct reading?
