Thermal Quadrupoles: Solving the Heat Equation through Integral Transforms

D Maillet, S Andre, A Degiovanni, C Moyne and J-C. Bastale

Thermal Quadrupoles describes a novel and powerful method which allows design engineers to firstly model a linear problem in heat conduction, then build a solution in an explicit form and finally obtain a numerical solution.

Book Description

Thermal Quadrupoles describes a novel and powerful method which allows design engineers to firstly model a linear problem in heat conduction, then build a solution in an explicit form and finally obtain a numerical solution. It constitutes a modelling and calculation tool based on a very efficient and systemic methodological approach. The chapters in this book increase in complexity from a rapid presentation of the method for one-dimensional transient problems, to non uniform boundary conditions or inhomogeneous media. In addition, a wide range of corrected problems of contemporary interest are presented with their numerical implementation in MATLABŪ language.

  • Covers the whole scope of linear problems
  • Presents a wide range of concrete issues of contemporary interest such as harmonic excitations of buildings, transfer in composite media, thermal contact resistance and moving material heat transfer.
  • Chapter devoted to practical numerical methods that can be used to inverse the Laplace transform.

Written from an engineering perspective, with applications to real engineering problems, this book will be of significant interest to researchers, lecturers and graduate students in mechanical engineering (thermodynamics) and process engineers needing to model a heat transfer problem to obtain optimized operating conditions. The book also provides an essential reference for researchers interested in the simulation or design of experiments where heat transfer plays a significant role.
