Heat Conduction

JCMsuite can solve heat conduction problems. These address the computation of the temperature distribution T within a body. Such systems are governed by the heat equation (sometimes also called heat conduction equation)

equation: heat conduction

where c is the specific heat capacity, ρ is the mass density, k is the heat conductivity, and q is a thermal source density. Heat convection or heat radiation within the body is not supported. On the boundaries one may impose convection-like conditions or Stefan-Boltzmann radiation conditions.
