Adaptive Heat Transfer Analysis
Techniques for error estimation have recently been developed for stress analysis problems. These methods may be considered as optimizing the finite element analysis according to the intrinsic behaviour of the given problem. This type of error estimation is now applied to heat flow analyses. The technique will first be demonstrated for steady state thermal problems and then extended to transient problems.
