See VM111 for test case description, geometric and material properties, and loading. Figure 112.1 Spherical Body Problem Sketch 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 curved-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. Results Comparison
