Solving problems in the thermal design of complex engineering systems
Abstract
A complex engineering system is represented in the form of an interrelated system of structural elements (e.g., rods) that are connected in series or converge at a single point. On the basis of a solution to the noncharacteristic Cauchy problem, the calculation of the nonstationary temperature field is reduced to a standard procedure involving integration of a system of ordinary differential equations. The algorithm proposed here makes it possible to generate individual problems or blocks of problems within the same design procedure.
