How to calculate heat transferred across borders in PDE Thermal model?
2 views (last 30 days)
I have a script very similar to the Thermal PDE rod example, with both a lumped and transient model.
What I would like to know now is, the total heat transfer across the borders for my model solution.
This would be split into axial (edge 2 and 4) and radial (edge 3) I believe it will be something using ux (result.XGradients) at the edge for axial and uy (result.YGradients) at the edge for radial. And I will also need to times the radial value by the rod circumference (for the entire radius) and the axial value will also need converting from and edge to a face.
Is this possible? And can someone point me in the direction of the method of solving this? I'm not looking for free code, just somewhere to start!
Thanks in advance
