Unsteady Heat Flow in a Slab – Simple Parabolic Partial Differential Equation (PDE)

Reference: This is from E.M. Rosen and R. N. Adams, “A Review of Spreadsheet Usage in Chemical Engineering Calculations”, Computers and Chemical Engineering, Vol. 11, No. 6, pp. 723-736, but they took it from Carnahan, Luther and Wilkes, “Applied Numerical Methods”, Wiley NY 1969 pg 434.  Very similar to an earlier problem that we did […]

A New Set of Problems to Work…From the Early Days of Personal Computers

What Next? We just completed working the ten problems from the 1997 ASEE workshop.  We worked a variety of problems that had solutions with other software packages such as Microsoft Excel, MATLAB, Mathematica, Maple and Polymath.  Please compare and let me know what you think.  Now, let’s look at the following journal article for a […]
