Advanced Computational Methods and Experiments in Heat Transfer XII
This paper presents a three-dimensional boundary element model (BEM), formulated in the frequency domain, to simulate the heat diffusion by conduction that occurs in the vicinity of a three-dimensional crack. The crack is assumed to have null thickness and does not allow diffusion of energy, so the heat fluxes are null along its boundary. The crack is assumed to be embedded in an unbounded medium. The boundary element formulation is written in terms of normalderivative integral equations (knowndoi:10.2495/ht120121 fatcat:2yfi7uztkvc5hkcoypunv6ipv4
