2 D Heat Conduction Equation

PROBLEM DEFINITION :

A Plate of dimension 1*1 meters is initially maintained at a temperature of 0


C.Later it is insulated at x=0 and y=0.The other two edges are maintained at 1 C.
Find the temperature distribution at time t=1 s. Plot the results at t=0.1 s , 0.2 s ,
0.3 s ,0.4 s ,0.5 s,0.7 s and 1 s.Solve by

I. Euler's explicit method


a) x = y = 0.2 and t = 0.004 s
b) x = y = 0.067 and t = 0.001 s
II. ADI Method
a) x = y = 0.1 and t = 0.01 s

GOVERNING EQUATION :

INITIAL CONDITION :
At time t =0 , T(x,y) = 0

BOUNDARY CONDITION :(time t>0)


T
At y=0 ,
=0 x
