Objectives

Understand the limitations of analytical solutions of conduction problems, and the need for computation-intensive numerical methods, Express derivates as differences, and obtain finite difference formulations, Solve steady one-dimensional conduction problems numerically using the finite difference method, and Solve transient one- or two-dimensional conduction problems using the finite difference method.

1. Limitations Analytical solution methods are limited to highly simplified problems in simple geometries. 2. Better Modeling An approximate solution is usually more accurate than the exact solution of a crude mathematical model. 3. Flexibility Engineering problems often require extensive parametric studies. 4. Complications even when the analytical solutions are available, they might be quite intimidating.

The numerical methods for solving differential equations are based on replacing the differential equations by algebraic equations. For finite difference method, this is done by replacing the derivatives by differences. A function f that depends on x. The first derivative of f(x) at a point is equivalent to the slope of a line tangent to the curve at that point.

df ( x ) f = lim x 0 x dx

f ( x + x ) f ( x ) = lim x 0 x

(5-5)

If we dont take the indicated limit, we will have the following approximate relation for the derivative:

df ( x ) dx f ( x + x ) f ( x ) x

(5-6)

The equation above can also be obtained by writing the Taylor series expansion of the function f about the point x,

2 1 2 d f ( x) f ( x + x ) = f ( x ) + x + x + (5-7) 2 dx 2 dx

df ( x )

The first term neglected is proportional to x2, and thus the error involved in each step is also proportional to x2.

However, the commutative error involved after M steps in the direction of length L is proportional to x since M(x2 )= (L/x)x2 = Lx.

Error = Lx

-The equation is applicable to each of the M-1 interior nodes M-1 equations for the determination of temperatures. -The two additional equations needed to solve are obtained by applying the energy balance on the two elements at the boundaries.

Boundary Conditions

A boundary node does not have a neighboring node on at least one side. Energy balance on the volume elements of boundary nodes is applied. Boundary conditions frequently encountered are:

1. 2. 3. 4.

specified temperature, specified heat flux, convection, and radiation boundary conditions.

Node number

1. Specified temperature boundary conditions: T(0) = T0 = Specified value T(L) = TM = Specified value

All sides

Q + Egen ,element = 0

(5-20)

The finite difference formulation at the node m=0 can be expressed as:

Qleft surface T1 T0 + kA + e0 ( Ax / 2 ) = 0 x

(5-21)

The finite difference form of various boundary conditions can be obtained from Eq. 521 by replacing Qleft surface left surface by a suitable expression.

T1 T0 q0 A + kA + e0 ( Ax / 2 ) = 0 x

(5-22)

T1 T0 hA (T T0 ) + kA + e0 ( Ax / 2 ) = 0 x

The finite difference formulation of a node on an insulated boundary can be treated as zero heat flux is Eq. 523. Another and more practical way is to treat the node on an insulated boundary as an interior node.

By replacing the insulation on the boundary by a mirror and considering the reflection of the medium as its extension Using Eq. 5.11:

Tm 1 2Tm + Tm +1 em + = 0 2 x k T1 2T0 + T1 em = 0 + 2 x k

(5-30)

(T1 T0 ) + em x 2 / 2k = 0
