ChEn 323 – Chapter 4 – Page 2 ¾ Until now we have only worked in 1 dimension and frequently that is just fine. However, there are cases when that assumption will not get good answers --- thus 2-dimensions ¾ Solution alternatives. ± Cf: General equation from chapter 2: . ± So for steady state with no internal generation (2D); . ± Numerical solution by either finite element or finite difference methods – we will strive to do some of this later in the summer (3 weeks?). This approach is at discrete points & it is approximate. However, it is often the only way to do it. ± Analytical solution is normally done by separation of variables. t T C q dz dT k z dy dT k y dx dT k x p = + + + ρ & 0 2 2 2 2 = + y T x T
