 September 23, 1999, 10:54 ADI in 3D #1 cherif Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links Dear friends, I am trying to solve a transient 3dD conduction problem in cylindrical coordinates. To solve the set of algebraic equations obtained i tried to use the ADI method. Unfortunately till now the results are bad. Can someone help me with reference (i have books about this topic but in 2D which is quite different), any article close to my topic will be very helpfull for me. Thank you very much for your help

Douglas, "Alternating Direction Methods for Three Space Variables," Numerische Mathematik, v. 4, pp. 41-63 (1962). I actually used the following: P. L. T. Brian, "A Finite-Difference Method of High-Order Accuracy for the Solution of Three-Dimensional Transient Heat Conduction Problems," AIChE Journal, v. 7, pp. 367-370 (1961). Good Luck! Jim
