Welcome! Here are the website rules, as well as some tips for using this forum.
I am a new heat engineering student. My questions are:
1) In a fire-tube boiler, why copper is not used for furnace body and smoke pipes inside the boiler? Copper is x15 time more thermal conductive.
2) Doesn't Iron pipe/ heating tank/ furnace need more fuel to heat up (for low thermal conductivity) and keep at high temperature?
