Description: CRREL Report
Abstract: This report outlines the development and verification of two computer models of two-dimensional steady-state heal conduction, including a variety of boundary conditions. One is a finite difference program and the other is a finite element program. The results of each program are compared to two analytic solutions, and to one another. Sample input and output, and user instructions for each program are included. The programs have the same accuracy when modeling problems involving rectangular boundaries. The finite element method is better able to model curved boundaries, wh ile the finite difference program is easier to use.
