Matlab heat transfer

  1. Apr 4, 2010 #1
    Hi, I am trying to model the heat transfer along a pipe using matlab as a transient problem.

    I understand matlab's ODE45 for one thing that is being solved for, but when something is broken up into lots of 'nodes' I do not understand how to get ODE45 to solve for them all.

    I have made a pdf explaining my problem, please could someone have a look and see if they can see my error.

    Just to say this is not homework. This is me learning matlab for a larger more complicated problem that IS part of my course, but I am trying to walk before I run. The pdf was intended for a lecturer, but now uni holidays have started, and he is not there, i need to turn to others for help...

    Thanks
    Alex
