SUMMARY:Kevin Cole\, Mechanical & Materials Engineering\, UNL
DESCRIPTION:ABSTRACT\: Exact analytical solutions of engineering problems c
ontinue to be important in the computer age because of the continued need
for benchmarking of fully-numeric solutions\, and for direct solvers appli
ed to inverse problems and to indirect measurements. Although many analyti
cal solutions are available in classic books and in the archival literatur
e\, the authors of this material usually assume that the mathematical expr
ession is all the reader needs. However for engineering applications\, con
siderable additional work can be required in order to obtain numerical val
ues. For this reason analytical solutions have something in common with im
ported furniture packed flat in a box – they should come with instructio
ns and tools needed to assemble them into a usable form. The EXACT interne
t database contains solutions of the heat conduction equation which have b
een repackaged\, by adding information and computer codes\, to make them m
ore useful to engineers and scientists. \nThe first half of the presentati
on will include a brief introduction to heat conduction and the method of
Green’s functions\, which has been used to obtain many of the solutions
available on the EXACT database. Some examples from the EXACT database wil
l be given. \nThe second half of the presentation is devoted to recent eng
ineering projects for which an exact solution has been a key component. Th
e projects include\: measurement of a thermal protective coating in jet-en
gine tail pipes\; a reaction-diffusion problem with application to fuel ce
lls\; and\, a moving-heat-source problem with application to welding and a
dditive manufacturing.
