 August 23, 2007, 09:40 thermal conductivity in conduction problem #1 sangeeta Guest   Posts: n/a I am writing a code in C++ to find out the temperature profile in a 2d conduction problem. suppose if i want to vary thermal conductivity which is the function of Coordinates, like k = x + y. So where this function wll be added in the discritizes equation. if k varies with temperature then i thnk ,it should as ap = an+aw+ae+as+(k); ap = an+aw+ae+as+(aT+b). is this right. please let me know
