Homework Help: Steady state heat conduction problem

  1. Jul 9, 2008 #1
    I have to solve a problem regarding "2D steady state heat conduction problem with an internal heat generation source". For boundary value, dirichlet is applied at 3 sides and neumann is at one side.

    I can solve this problem when no internal heat source exists and only dirichlet is applied.
    Would anyone please suggest me how can I solve the problem?

    Re: Steady state heat conduction problem SOLVED

    I solved the problem my self. I would recommend the book "Heat Conduction" by Ozesik for
    solving this type of problem. Its the best.

    I have one queation, is it possible to get the exact solution of nonhomogeneous partial equation using matlab?

    if we have 2D heat equation
    and we have unit squre domain
    where g is source term
    initial and boundary conditions are
    and U(x,y,t)=0 for all t at boundary
    can you tell me how we write in matlab code
