Abstract


Through the present work the authors determined the analytical solution of a transient two-dimensional heat conduction problem using Green’s Functions (GF). This method is very useful for solving cases where heat conduction is transient and whose boundary conditions vary with time. Boundary conditions of the problem in question, with rectangular geometry, are of the prescribed temperature type - prescribed flow in the direction x and prescribed flow - prescribed flow in the direction y, implying in the corresponding GF given by GX21Y22. The initial temperature of the space domain is assumed to be different from the prescribed temperature occurring at one of the boundaries along x. The temperature field solution of the two-dimensional problem was determined. The intrinsic verification of this solution was made by comparing the solution of a 1D problem. This was to consider the incident heat fluxes at y = 0 and y = 2b tending to zero, thus making the problem one-dimensional, with corresponding GF given by GX21. When comparing the results obtained in both cases, for a time of t = 1 s, it was seen that the temperature field of both was very similar, which validates the solution obtained for the 2D problem.
