CONSTITUTIVE EQUATIONS

Introducing the temperature field T(xi,t), the heat flux vector q(xi,t)→qn(xi,t) and the thermal

conductivity in the n direction λn, th following holds:

∂T

qn = −λn (4.1)

∂n

and in the (O,xi) space

∂T

q x = − λx

∂x

∂T

q y = −λ y (4.2)

∂y

∂T

q z = − λz

∂z

For an isotropic media

qi = −λT,i i = 1, 2,3.

(4.3)

THERMAL BALANCE

The balance of thermal energy in an infinitesimal volume 𝑑𝑉 = 𝑑𝑥𝑑𝑦𝑑𝑧 of the body in the x

direction for an infinitesimal time increment dt reads

dQin = qx dydzdt

⎛ ∂q ⎞

dQout = ⎜ qx + x dx ⎟ dydzdt

⎝ ∂x ⎠ (4.4)

∂q

dQin − dQout = x dVdt

∂x

Taking into account the heat fluxes in the other directions the thermal balance is

𝜕𝑞0 (4.5)

𝑑𝑄() − 𝑑𝑄+,- = − 𝑑𝑉𝑑𝑡 = 0
⟹

Considering the case of heat generation within the body

dQgen = qgen dVdt

(4.6)

the equation becomes

The previous equation can be recast (using the 4.3) in the form

and, in the homogeneous an isotropic case

Finally

It is possible to draw an analogy between the thermal problem and 3D solid mechanics

In the finite element approach, the aim is to discretize, that is to condense the distributed

properties of each element on some boundary nodes that "communicate" with the rest of the body

and with external actions. The solution is determined in a weak form because the equilibrium is

only satisfied in a mediated sense on the domain of the element. In order to distribute properties

on nodes, we wish to approximate a function T(x,y,z) defined in an interval [a,b] by some set of

basis functions

)

𝑇 𝑥, 𝑦, 𝑧 = 𝛼( 𝜑( 𝑥, 𝑦, 𝑧 (4.24)

(aR

where i is the number of grid points (the edges of our elements) defined at locations xi , yi , zi .

The functions are usually polynomials, but in some case (e.g. in acoustic analysis) can be useful

to use trigonometric functions. These functions are called interpolating functions or shape

functions. Unless in particular cases, the linear combination of these functions will not provide

an exact but only approximate solution. The set of interpolating functions can in theory be chosen

ad libitum, but in order for the convergence of the result to be monotonic with the condensation,

four fundamental requirements must be respected:

1. ability to have same variation of temperature of the element without the occurrence of

heat flux within (equivalent to rigid motions)

2. allowing states of constant gradients of temperature throughout the element (patch test)

3. compatibility along the contour lines or faces of contiguous elements, no breaks or

interpenetrations should occur

4. continuity or absence of singular points in the description of the temperature field.

One time the interpolating functions 𝜑( 𝑥, 𝑦, 𝑧 for each internal point of the element are

identified, it is possible to write

𝑇 𝑥, 𝑦, 𝑧 = 𝛼R 𝜑R 𝑥, 𝑦, 𝑧 + 𝛼K 𝜑K 𝑥, 𝑦, 𝑧 + ⋯ + 𝛼) 𝜑) 𝑥, 𝑦, 𝑧 (4.25)

or in matrix form

𝛼R

𝑇 𝑥, 𝑦, 𝑧 = 𝜑R 𝑥, 𝑦, 𝑧
𝜑K 𝑥, 𝑦, 𝑧
…
𝜑) 𝑥, 𝑦, 𝑧 𝛼K

…

𝛼) (4.26)

𝑇 𝑥, 𝑦, 𝑧 = 𝜑 𝑥, 𝑦, 𝑧
𝛼

We apply the previous interpolation on particular points, the nodes, considering all the degree-

of-freedom defined for each node

… …

ΘO = 𝛼R 𝜑R 𝑥O , 𝑦O , 𝑧O + 𝛼K 𝜑K 𝑥O , 𝑦O , 𝑧O + ⋯ + 𝛼) 𝜑) 𝑥O , 𝑦O , 𝑧O

… …

(4.27)

Θ = 𝐴
𝛼

…

𝐴= 𝜑 𝑥 O 𝑦O , 𝑧O

,

…

Note that, given the positions of the nodes in the local reference, 𝐴 is a known matrix, composed

of defined numerical values.

If we make the number of coefficients of the series of 𝛼 coincident with in number of degree-of-

freedom of the element (n = k), the matrix 𝐴 is square, a necessary condition for its inversion.

This allows to solve for 𝛼

𝛼 = 𝐴gR Θ

(4.28)

that replaced in the expression of the internal temperature field (4.27) bring to

𝑇 𝑥, 𝑦, 𝑧 = 𝜑 𝑥, 𝑦, 𝑧
𝐴gR Θ

(4.29)

𝑇 𝑥, 𝑦, 𝑧 = 𝑁 𝑥, 𝑦, 𝑧
Θ

(4.30)

Θ is the vector of the nodal temperatures of the element.

4.4 Finite element formulation

Introducing

𝐷C =

𝜕𝑥 𝜕𝑦 𝜕𝑧

we can write

∇𝑇 = 𝐷𝑇
⟹
∇𝑇 C = 𝑇𝐷C (4.32)

Considering a finite element approximation

𝑇 𝑥 = 𝑁 𝑥
Θ where 𝑁 = 𝑁R , 𝑁K , … , 𝑁)
,
ΘC = ΘR , ΘK , … , Θ)

(4.33)

where Θ is the nodal temperature vector and 𝑁 is the shape functions matrix:

∇𝑇 = 𝐷

⟹
∇𝑇 C = 𝑁
Θ
𝐷C = ΘC 𝑁 C
