 September 6, 2000, 11:09 Analytical solution to the 3d Laplace equation #1 Chrys Correa Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, I've written a 3-d finite volume code to solve the Laplace equation, and I would like to test it. Does anyone know of an analytical solution that I can use for this purpose? Thanks. Chrys

With constant properties and no heat generation or phase change terms, the physics are captured by a LaPlace equation with temperature as the dependent variable. Analytic solutions for one, two or three dimensions are usually given as infinite series. Details depend on the boundary conditions, which must fit some mathematical requirements. Good luck.

 September 7, 2000, 01:26 Re: Analytical solution to the 3d Laplace equation #4 eddy Guest   Posts: n/a write a sencond order 3-d polynomial,for example, a*x*x+b*y*y+c*z*z=d take a laplace operation on it, you will get the source item 2d+2b+2c, calculate boundary condtions according to above polynomial. Now, you can use you solver to get results and compare with the exact results calculated from polynomieal. good luck

Pretty soon you'l have an analytical solution. also try solving 2d problems as well
