Unformatted text preview: 1812 x 10-3 ft C2 = 2.7046 x 10-3 Btu/°F A2 = 4.1666 x 10-2 ft h = 4 Btu/hr-ft2-°F Loading
q = 10 Btu/hr
Ton = 100°F
Toff = 125°F
To = 70°F Analysis Assumptions and Modeling Notes
The conductivity resistance is assumed to be small compared with the thermal capacitance for both the heater
and the box. A time of 12 min (0.2 hr) is arbitrarily selected to allow several cycles of response. The integration
time step is chosen to be 0.001 and automatic time stepping is used to reduce the number of substeps. The
nodes are arbitrarily located at the origin. ANSYS Verification Manual . ANSYS Release 9.0 . 002114 . © SAS IP, Inc. 1–351 VM159 Results Comparison
