Unformatted text preview: Inc. VM96: Temperature Distribution in a Short, Solid Cylinder
Reference: P. J. Schneider, Conduction Heat Transfer, 2nd Printing, Addison-Wesley Publishing Co., Inc., Reading, MA, 1957, pg. 134, fig. 6-7. Analysis Type(s): Thermal Analysis (ANTYPE = 0) Element Type(s): 3-D 10-Node Tetrahedral Thermal Solid Elements (SOLID87) Input Listing: vm96.dat Test Case
A short, solid cylinder is subjected to the surface temperatures shown. Determine the temperature distribution
within the cylinder Figure 96.1 Short, Solid Cylinder Problem Sketch Material Properties

Since the problem is axisymmetric, the entire cylinder geometry is not required. An angle Θ = 45° is arbitrarily
chosen. Postprocessing is used to print temperatures at the centerline in geometric order. A finer mesh density
(than required for reasonable results) is used to...
