Unformatted text preview: finer grid solution different? Why? Now, redo the problem as an unsteady calculation with the finer grid, Δ x = Δ y = 0.5 units. Select Heat Conduction Applets on the website and then Launch Calculator window for 2-D, Unsteady heat conduction. Select aluminum as the material. (Why didn’t you need to make a selection for the steady calculation above?) Set an initial temperature of 100C at all interior points. Discuss the time evolution of the solution. Compare your results for the steady-state (long time) solution with the corresponding steady solution you obtained earlier. ....
