Unformatted text preview: nverges toward the solution from above the target temperature
while, in general, the higher order PLANE35 and PLANE77 elements converge from below the target
temperature. 2. For the coarse meshes, the lower order PLANE55 element, in triangular form, does not predict accurate
results. However, further mesh refinement produces more accurate results. 3. The higher order PLANE35 triangular element and the higher order PLANE77 element in triangular form,
produce identical results. ANSYS Verification Manual . ANSYS Release 9.0 . 002114 . © SAS IP, Inc. 2–25 VMC7: One-Dimensional Transient Heat Transfer
