Numerical solution of heat conduction
The results of numerical solutions are given at discrete points. The numerical solution involves three steps: (1) discretization of the computational domain, (2) discretization of the governing equations, and (3) solution of the algebraic equations.
- Discretization of computational domain and governing equations
- 1-D Steady Conduction
- 1-D Unsteady Conduction
- Multi-dimensional unsteady-state conduction
- Solution of algebraic equations
