Two dimensional heat transfer of a ceramic strip with both radiation
and convection on the top boundary. The ceramic has a thermal
conductivity of 3 W/mK and the sides are fixed at a temperature of
900 °C while the bottom boundary is insulated. The surrounding
temperature is 50 °C. The top boundary is exposed to both
natural convection (with a film coefficient h = 50 W/m2K)
and radiation (with emissivity ε = 0.7 and the
Stefan-Boltzmann constant 5.669·10-8
W/m2K4). The solution is sought at three points
along the vertical symmetry line.
