Flux plotting Draw lines of constant temperature (isotherms). Lines perpendicular to these will be energy flow lines (along the direction of maximum gradient). If we keep m = n then the shape factor S is: S N # of flow tubes M # of squares in flow tubes

Pg 250 table 17.1 has a list of shape factors q = S k (T h -T c ) Note: for convective circular cylinders S 2 π ln(r o /r i ) T + T Energy flow T n m

Analogy solution: Set up electrical flow lines in geometrically similar shape and record voltage where voltage is the same. Numerical solution: Set up 2-D gradient on object. Look at a volume element i,j+1 x i-1,j y i,j i+1,j i,j-1

The heat input to the element is: δ Q k y ( T i-1,j – T i,j ) + k y (T
