Buttsworth, David R. (2001) A finite difference routine for the solution of transient one dimensional heat conduction problems with curvature and varying thermal properties. Technical Report. University of Southern Queensland, Faculty of Engineering and Surveying, Toowoomba, Australia.
The implicit finite difference routine described in this report was developed for the solution of
transient heat flux problems that are encountered using thin film heat transfer gauges in aerodynamic
testing. The routine allows for curvature and varying thermal properties within the substrate material.
The routine was written using MATLAB script. It has been found that errors which arise due to the
finite difference approximations are likely to represent less than 1% of the inferred heat flux for
typical transient test conditions.
