can anyone help me with the following problem: I have been asked to estimate the rise in temperature in the salt in a final storage containing spent HTR-fuel elements in a time span of 100 years. Given the following data: Average heat flux 10 W/m; Heat capacity of salt 0.9 kJ/kg.K; density of salt 2100 kg/m3; distance between storage vessels in salt S=30m.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What I know is that the following relation might in solving this problem (not sure if is correct)

[tex] \int_{\tau_1}^{\infty}{P_D(t)}dt = \tau.S^2.\rho.C.\Delta T [/tex]

Thank you in advance
