In class, we solved the heat equation (here I am taking K and L to be 1) ∂T ∂t = ∂ 2 T ∂x 2 (1) with non‘simple’ boundary conditions T ( x = 0 , t ) = 0 (2) T ( x = 1 , t ) = 100 (3) and initial conditions T ( x, t = 0) = 0 . (4) This involved splitting the solution into a steady bit and a transient bit, T ( x, t ) = T s ( x ) + T tr ( x, t ) . (5) The steady part T s ( x ) = 100 x (6) takes care of the nonsimple boundary conditions, and the general solution for the transient part T tr is given by T tr ( x, t ) = summationdisplay β ( a β cos βx + b β sin βx ) e β 2 t . (7) Using the boundary condition at x = 0 kills the cosine terms ( a β = 0) and the boundary condition at...
