File Information

This is the 4th MATLAB App in the Virtual Thermal/Fluid Lab series.
This MATLAB App allows you to:
1. Visualize the change of temperature distribution in a transient heat conduction problem
2. Test the effects of initial and boundary conditions and thermal diffusivity on temperature distribution
3. Understand numerical stability and effect of convergence criterion
4. Learn to use the MuPADĀ® Notebook to compute analytical solution of the steady-state conduction problem
5. Look at the GUI source code and see how it is created
Check out the webinar on virtual fluid mechanics and heat transfer labs with MATLAB:

Required Products Symbolic Math Toolbox
MATLAB release MATLAB 8.0 (R2012b)
MATLAB Search Path
Other requirements MATLAB 8.0 (R2012b) and later required to install it as an App. However, earlier versions can be used to run it as a GUI.
