The E.F.M. Applied to Transient Heat Conduction Problems
- 21 Downloads
The solution of 2-D transient heat conduction problems are considered. The Laplace transform in time is applied to the differential equation and the boundary conditions. The ‘transformed problem’ is solved using the Edge Function Method. Solutions in the time domain are obtained using a numerical Laplace transform inversion technique.
