Description

EX_HEATTRANSFER2 1D Stationary heat transfer with radiation.

[ FEA, OUT ] = EX_HEATTRANSFER2( VARARGIN ) NAFEMS T2 benchmark example for heat transfer with radiation [1]. The left end of a 0.1 m rod is held at a temperature of 1000 K while the right end is radiating with an emissivity, em = 0.98, and Stefan-Bolzmann constant, sigma = 5.67e-8 Wm^2/K^4.

       +---------- L=0.1m ----------+ T(0.1)?
   T=1000K                   q_n = em*sigma*(T_amb^4-T^4)

The rod is made of iron with density 7850 kg/m^3, heat capacity 460 J/kgK, and thermal conductivity 55.563 W/mK. The steady state temperature at the left end is sought when the surrounding ambient temperature is 300 K.
