Re: Duct Temperature Distribution

I am trying to solve for the Transient solution, and then i want to know at what time does it reaches the state state condition. the H value doesn't appear in my equation because both the right side and bottom side are insulated. The Top side has a constant heat flux and the right hand side is at constant temperature. And yes i was trying to follow the GaussSidel method. The thing is that i don't know how can i confirm my answers whether they are correct or not.

If you are trying to find the steady state you have no need of the time step and can just solve but it would require new equations most likely (I dont have time to check the derivation right now).
