Calculating of heat transmission loss (convection) in a thick glass plate

  1. Apr 10, 2009 #1

    Do anybody here know how much and how quick a 50-100mm thick tempered glass plate of size 500mm * 500mm fully heated up within its bulk mass to a temperature of 60 degrees celcius looses it heat energy/temperature over time when surrounded by standing ambient air (20 degrees celcius)?

    What I want to know, is the temperature profile "out-of-plane" inside the 50-100mm thick glass and related to time, especially within the first 10 minutes.

    I know there are several programs out there, who could answer this question, such as COMSOL 3.5, ANSYS Multiphysics, etc. But unfortunately I don't have access to any of these fancy software packages.

    Did anyone here made already/are able to do some calculations related to the above?

    Thanks in advance
