The kiln is maintained at 40°C by injecting hot steam into it. The two ends of the kiln, 4 m x 5 m in size, are made of a 3-mm-thick sheet metal covered with 2-cm-thick Styrofoam (k = 0.033 W/m K). The convection heat transfer coefficients on the inner and the outer surfaces of the kiln are 3000 W/m2-K and 25 W/m2-K, respectively.
