Two-dimensional Analysis

Modelling the Object

Before actually working with the program, a sketch of the object should be prepared in which relevant data is summarised for model input. Such a sketch of the two-dimensional demonstration object would include the information shown below: dimensions, reference coordinates, and material properties.

  material  λ [Wm-1K-1]
0 stucco 0.800
1 masonry 0.164
2 interior plaster 0.700
3 exterior plaster 0.800
     
4 insulation 0.041
5 adhesive mortar 0.271
6 reinf. concrete 2.200
     
7 sand 1.000
8 expansion strip 0.150
9 isol. underlayment 0.040
10 concrete topping 1.200
     
  space  α [Wm-2K-1]
0 exterior 25
1 interior 6

Since negative coordinate values are allowed, the positioning of the graph origin (x=0, y=0) is generally arbitrary. The reference coordinates shown here, however, are the ones consistent with the geometric input data as related in the next section.
