20     \sslist{onedheatdiff002.py}
21     \label{Sec:1DHDv0}
22    
23     Our second example is a cold iron bar at a constant temperature of $T\hackscore{ref}=20^{\circ} C$, see \reffig{fig:onedhdmodel}. The bar is perfectly insulated on all sides with a heating element at one end keeping the the temperature at a constant level $T\hackscore0=100^{\circ} C$. as heat is applied; energy will disperse along the bar via conduction. With time the bar will reach a constant temperature equivalent to that of the heat source.
24    
25     This problem is very similar to the example of temperature diffusion in granit blocks presented in the previous section~\ref{Sec:1DHDv00}. So we will modify the script we have already developed for the granit blocks to adjust
26     it to the iron bar problem.
27     The obvious difference between the two problems are the dimensions of the domain and different materials involved. This will change the time scale of the model from years to hours.
28     The new settings are;
29 ahallam 2801 \begin{python}
30 gross 2905 #Domain related.
31     mx = 1*m #meters - model length
32     my = .1*m #meters - model width
33     ndx = 100 # mesh steps in x direction
34     ndy = 1 # mesh steps in y direction - one dimension means one element
35 ahallam 2606 #PDE related
36 gross 2905 rho = 7874. *kg/m**3 #kg/m^{3} density of iron
37     cp = 449.*J/(kg*K) # J/Kg.K thermal capacity
38     rhocp = rho*cp
39     kappa = 80.*W/m/K # watts/m.Kthermal conductivity
40     qH = 0 * J/(sec*m**3) # J/(sec.m^{3}) no heat source
41     Tref = 20 * Celsius # base temperature of the rod
42     T0 = 100 * Celsius # temperature at heating element
43     tend= 0.5 * day # - time to end simulation
44 ahallam 2801 \end{python}
45 gross 2905 We also need to alter the initial value for the temperature. Now we need to set the
46     temperature to $T\hackscore{0}$ at the left end of the rod where we have $x\hackscore{0}=0$ and
47     $T\hackscore{ref}$ elsewhere. Instead of \verb|whereNegative| function we use now the
48     \verb|whereZero| which returns the value one for those sample points where
49     the argument (almost) equals zero and the value zero elsewhere. The initial
50     temperature is set to;
51     \begin{python}
52     # ... set initial temperature ....
53     T= T0*whereZero(x[0])+Tref*(1-whereZero(x[0]))
54     \end{python}
55 ahallam 2401
56 gross 2905 \subsection{Dirchlet Boundary Conditions}
57     In iron rod model we want to keep the initial temperature $T\hackscore0$ on the left side of the domain over time.
58     So when we solve the PDE~\refEq{eqn:hddisc} the solution must have the value $T\hackscore0$ on the left hand
59     side of the domain. As mentioned already in Section~\ref{SEC BOUNDARY COND} where we discussed
60     boundary condition this kind of condition are called a \textbf{Dirichlet boundary condition}. Some people also
61     use the term \textbf{constraint} for the PDE.
62    
63     To define a Dirichlet boundary condition we need to define where to apply the condition and what value the
64     solution should have at these locations. In \esc we use $q$ and $r$ to define the Dirichlet boundary conditions
65     for a PDE. The solution $u$ of the PDE is set to $r$ for all sample points where $q$ has a positive value.
66     Mathematically this is expressed in the form;
67     \begin{equation}
68     u(x) = r(x) \mbox{ for any } x \mbox{ with } q(x) > 0
69     \end{equation}
70     In the case of the iron rod
71     we can set;
72 ahallam 2801 \begin{python}
73 gross 2905 q=whereZero(x[0])
74     r=T0
75 ahallam 2801 \end{python}
76 gross 2905 to prescibe the value $T0$ for the temperature at the left end of the rod where $x\hackscore{0}=0$.
77     Here we use the \verb|whereZero| function again which we have alread used to set the initial value.
78     Notice that $r$ is set to the constant value $r$ for all sample points. In fact,
79     values of $r$ are used only where $q$ is positive. Where $q$ is non-positive,
80     $r$ may have any value as these values are not used by the PDE solver.
81 ahallam 2401
82 gross 2905 To set the Dirichlet boundary conditions for the PDE to be solved in each time step we need
83     to add some statements;
84 ahallam 2801 \begin{python}
85 gross 2905 mypde=LinearPDE(rod)
86     A=zeros((2,2)))
87     A[0,0]=kappa
88     q=whereZero(x[0])
89     mypde.setValue(A=A, D=rhocp/h, q=q, r=T0)
90 ahallam 2801 \end{python}
91 gross 2905 It is important to remark here that the Dirichlet condition \textbf{overwrites} any Neuman boundary
92     condition \esc sets by default (or you may set).

108     \label{fig:onedheatout 002}
109     \end{center}
110     \end{figure}
111    
112     Besides some cosmetic modification this all we need to change. The total energy over time is shown in \reffig{fig:onedheatout1 002}. As heat
113     is transfered into the rod by the heater the total energy is growing over time but reaches a plateau
114     when the temperature is constant is the rod, see \reffig{fig:onedheatout 002}.
115     YOu will notice that the time scale of this model is several order of magnitudes faster than
116     for the granite rock problem due to the different length scale and material parameters.
117     In practice it can take a few models run before the right time scale has been chosen\footnote{An estimate of the
118     time scale for a diffusion problem is given by the formula $\frac{\rho c\hackscore{p} L\hackscore{0}^2}{4 \kappa}$, see
119     \url{http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fick\%27s_laws_of_diffusion}}.

126     \section{For the Reader}
127 ahallam 2401 \begin{enumerate}
128 gross 2905 \item Move the boundary line between the two granite blocks to another part of the domain.
129     \item Split the domain into multiple granite blocks with varying temperatures.
130     \item Vary the mesh step size. Do you see a difference in the answers? What does happen with the compute time?
131     \item Insert an internal heat source (Hint: The internal heat source is given by $q\hackscore{H}$.)
132     \item Change the boundary condition for iron rod example such that the temperature
133     at the right end is kept at a constant level $T\hackscore{ref}$, which corresponds to the installation of a cooling element (Hint: Modify $q$ and $r$).
