Lecture Notes ME4906, Mechanical Engineering, PolyU 2008/2009 5.3 Finite Difference for PDE of 1D in Space 5.3.1 Explicit Scheme Consider the problem of 1D unsteady heat transfer defined below, The solution domain is two-dimensional, space x and time t . The length L is divided into N x points and the time advances from t= 0 at an interval of t : t =(1,2,3,…) t . Figure 4. Explicit scheme for time derivative The second space derivative is approximated by ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) 2 1, 2 , 1, , + + = ∆ = ∆ xx T i l T i l T i l T x i x t l t x and the time derivative is given by ( ) ( ) ( ) , 1 , , + = ∆ = ∆ t T i l T i l T x i x t l t t So the PDE is discretized as ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) 2 2 , 1 , 1, 2 , 1, , 1 1 2 , 1, 1, , / κ κ + + + = + = + + + = ∆ ∆ T i l T i l T i l T i l T i l t x T i l c T i l c T i l T i l c t x Time x=L x t i- 1, i, i+ 1 l+ 1, l 2 2 κ = T T t x

### What students are saying

• 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.
