Robin boundary condition for cooling

  1. Mar 30, 2015 #1
    Hello all,
    I am solving a heat transfer problem for cooling of laminate plate in a cooling press and I intend to use a Robin boundary condition on one of the sides to evaporate heat away from the plate. The Robin boundary equation is specified thus:

    k∂T(t)/∂n + hT(t) = g(t)

    where k is the plate thermal conductivity, h is the convective heat transfer and g(t) is a force term to enhance cooling of the plate. I want a function to express g(t) but don't know how. Anyone with an idea should help. thanks
