Ozisik, 2012 IIT Kanpur TSS(x,y,z) • Split the steady state problem (TSS) into two sub problems (TA and TB) TSS(x,y,z) = TA(x,y,z) + TB(x,y,z) PDE: NH PDE: H PDE: NH BCs: NH BCs: NH BCs: H TA(x,y,z) TB(x,y,z) 0 • The first problem (TA) will have homogeneous PDE (no generation) and all nonhomogeneous BCs, this will require further splitting to solve • The second problem (TB) will have nonhomogeneous PDE (with generation) and all BCs in its homogeneous form, which can be obtained by equating the corresponding fi to zero (see general BCs), this will also require further splitting to solve 4 Superposition – step 3 [ref] N.

"Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
