Analysis Type(s): Thermal Analysis (ANTYPE = 0) Element Type(s): 3-D Thermal Solid Elements (SOLID70) Input Listing: vm101.dat Test Case A short solid cylinder is subjected to the surface temperatures shown. Determine the temperature distribution within the cylinder. Figure 101.1 Short Solid Cylinder Problem Sketch Material Properties k = 1.0 Btu/hr-ft-°F Geometric Properties r= = 6 in = 0.5 ft Loading TTop = 40°F TBot = TWall = 0°F Analysis Assumptions and Modeling Notes Since the problem is axisymmetric only a sector (one element wide) is modeled. A small angle Θ=10° is used for approximating the circular boundary with a straight-sided element. Note that circumferential symmetry is automatically ensured due to default adiabatic boundary conditions. POST1 is used to report centerline and midradius temperatures to compare results.
