Unformatted text preview: = 25°F Analysis Assumptions and Modeling Notes Since the problem is axisymmetric, only a one-element sector is needed. A small angle Θ = 15° is used for approximating the circular boundary with a straight-side element. Nodal coupling is used to ensure circumferential symmetry. Automatic time stepping is used. The initial integration time step (6/40 = 0.15 hr) is based on ≈ δ2/4 α, where δ is the element characteristic length (0.0555 ft) and α is the thermal diffusivity (k/γc = 0.005 ft2/hr). POST1 is used to extract results from the solution phase. ANSYS Verification Manual .
