Unformatted text preview: Lecture 8 Dr. Srinath V.Ekkad Transient Conduction Finite Difference Method In order to include the effects of the time variable, various finite difference schemes have been devised. These include: 1. Explicit scheme - Forward differences in time 2. Implicit scheme - Backward differences in time 3. Crank-Nicolson implicit scheme - Centered differences Methods to derive finite difference equations include: a. Energy balance b. Taylor series (direct discretization of heat conduction equation) Consider one-dimensional, transient heat conduction with no heat generation in a material exposed to convection on the left face and insulated on the right face. The sides are perfectly insulated so heat can flow in the x-direction only.

Procedure: Represent the physical system by a nodal network , with an m, n notation used to designate the location of discrete points in the network, Use the energy balance method to obtain a finite-difference equation for each node of unknown temperature. Solve the resulting set of equations for the nodal temperatures at t = t, 2t, 3t , , until steady-state is reached. What is represented by the temperature, ? , p m n T and discretize the problem in time by designating a time increment t and expressing the time as t = pt , where p assumes integer values, ( p = 0, 1, 2,). Storage Term Energy Balance and Finite-Difference Approximation for the Storage Term For any nodal region, the energy balance is in g st E E E + = g g g (5.81) where, according to convention, all heat flow is assumed to be into the region.
