Temperature Distribution In An Infinite Plate As A Function Of The Input Heat Flux, George Franklin Wright

#### Temperature Distribution In An Infinite Plate As A Function Of The Input Heat Flux, George Franklin Wright

*Masters Theses*

"It is the purpose of this thesis to investigate the effects of a variable input heat flux impinging equally on both sides, on the temperature distribution within an infinite plate. An infinite plate may be defined as one in which the dimensions are infinite in two directions and finite in thickness. For practical purposes such a plate could be thought of as one in which the thickness was small enough, compared to the other two dimensions, so that a temperature gradient exists only normal to the surfaces of the plate. This assumption will be made to establish one-dimensional heat flow ...

Temperature Distribution In A Semi-Infinite Solid As A Function Of The Input Heat Flux, Lloyd Carl Laciny

#### Temperature Distribution In A Semi-Infinite Solid As A Function Of The Input Heat Flux, Lloyd Carl Laciny

*Masters Theses*

"In this thesis the problem of varying heat flux into a semi-infinite solid initially at zero temperature is investigated. Varying heat flux means that the heat transferred to the solid by its surroundings is a function of time; in this particular problem it is chosen to be an exponential function of time. A semi-infinite solid is one which is bounded by only one plane.

This subject has achieved considerable importance in the field of space technology. A body in space is beyond the realm of aerodynamic heating and non-uniform skin temperatures reached as a result of radiation from a high ...
