 June 20, 2012, 00:11 Transient Conditional Time step #1 New Member   Bhavik Join Date: Apr 2012 Location: Arlington, TX Posts: 14 Rep Power: 5 Hi everyone, I am trying to solve a transient problem comprising of the following data- There is a grid where at a time only one block is heated then the power is transferred to another block. Say for example block 1 is heated for 3 secs after that block 2 is heated from 3 secs to 6 secs and block 3 from 6 secs to 9 secs. And I have to find the temperature distribution at every time step. So can anyone tell me how can I be able to do the above.....

 June 20, 2012, 02:18 Hi #2 Senior Member   Danial Join Date: Nov 2011 Posts: 179 Rep Power: 6 Regarding your problem statement, if i understood it well, I think you can define temperature as a function of time, Say, for Time(t) [0 to z] sec, Temp[T] for block 1 is T1 (just notation for block1) and if "t " is greater than "z" secs "T" becomes 'T2' (just change the notation) and so on. In my opinion, you can easily generate an expression of temp as a function of time. It is just an idea , you can give it a shot if it works.Bingooooooooo! I am sure Glenn will correct me if I am mistaken.
