A practical way of dealing with such geometries in the finite difference method is to replace the elements bordering the irregular geometry by a series of simple volume elements. 5-38 Chapter 5 Numerical Methods in Heat Conduction 5-46 A long solid body is subjected to steady two-dimensional heat transfer. The unknown nodal temperatures and the rate of heat loss from the bottom surface through a 1-m long section are to be determined. Assumptions 1 Heat transfer through the body is given to be steady and two-dimensional. 2 Heat is generated uniformly in the body. 3 Radiation heat transfer is negligible. Properties The thermal conductivity is given to be k = 45 W/m C. Analysis The nodal spacing is given to be x = x = l =0.05 m, and the general finite difference form of an interior node for steady two-dimensional heat conduction is expressed as T T T T T g l k left top right bottom node node + + +- + = 4 2 where C 5 . 93 C W/m 214 ) m 05 . )( W/m 10 8 ( 2 3 6 2 2 node = = = k l g k l g The finite difference equations for boundary nodes are obtained by applying an energy balance on the volume elements and taking the direction of all heat transfers to be towards the node under consideration: 4- 200 240 290 260 : (interior) 3 Node 4- 290 325 290 350 : (interior) 2 Node 2 ) ( 325 2 290 240 2 : ) convection ( 1 Node 2 3 2 2 2 1 1 1 1 = + + + + = + + + + = +- +- +- +- k l g T k l g T k l g T T hl l T l k l T kl l T l k where C 20 , W/m 10 8 C, .
