Description

EX_HEATTRANSFER7 1D Transient heat diffusion with analytic solution.

[ FEA, OUT ] = EX_HEATTRANSFER7( VARARGIN ) Transient heat diffusion problem with analytic solution. A 1 m rod is kept at fixed temperature on one end and constant heat flux at the other as in the illustration.

       +---------- L=1m ----------+ T = 25
     q_n = 1       T(t=0) = 25

Accepts the following property/value pairs.
