Unformatted text preview: Chapter 5 Numerical Methods in Heat Conduction 573 A plane wall with no heat generation is subjected to specified temperature at the left (node 0) and heat flux at the right boundary (node 6). The explicit transient finite difference formulation of the boundary nodes and the finite difference formulation for the total amount of heat transfer at the left boundary during the first 3 time steps are to be determined. Assumptions 1 Heat transfer through the wall is given to be transient, and the thermal conductivity to be constant. 2 Heat transfer is onedimensional since the plate is large relative to its thickness. 3 There is no heat generation in the medium. q Δ x T • • • • • • • 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 Analysis Using the energy balance approach and taking the direction of all heat transfers to be towards the node under consideration, the explicit finite difference formulations become Left boundary node: C 50 ° = = T T i Right boundary node: t T T C x q x T T k i i i i Δ − Δ =...
