Determination of the temperature field of shell structures
Abstract
A stationary heat conduction problem is formulated for the case of shell structures, such as those found in gasturbine and jet engines. A twodimensional elliptic differential equation of stationary heat conduction is obtained which allows, in an approximate manner, for temperature changes along a third variable, i.e., the shell thickness. The twodimensional problem is reduced to a series of onedimensional problems which are then solved using efficient difference schemes. The approach proposed here is illustrated by a specific example.
