(p.61) 3 Heat Transfer and Other Field Problems in One Dimension
An Introduction to Nonlinear Finite Element Analysis


Oxford University Press

This chapter considers the use of the finite element method in analysing heat transfer and other field problems in one dimension. A model nonlinear differential equation governing one-dimensional problems involving a single unknown is presented to illustrate the finite element model development and discuss solution methods to solve the resulting nonlinear algebraic equations. In this case, iterative methods must be used to solve the nonlinear finite element equations. The direct iteration procedure and Newton's iteration procedure are discussed, along with the computer implementation of the finite element method.

Keywords:   finite element method, heat transfer, one-dimensional problems, nonlinear differential equation, iteration procedure, computer implementation
