Numerical Simulation of 1D Unsteady Heat Conduction-Convection in Spherical and Cylindrical Coordinates by Fourth-Order FDM
This paper aims to apply the Fourth Order Finite Difference Method (FDM) to solve the one-dimensional unsteady conduction-convection equation with energy generation (or sink) in cylindrical and spherical coordinates. Two applications were compared through exact solutions to demonstrate the accuracy of the proposed formulation.
Keywords:central difference method, cylindrical and spherical coordinates, numerical simulation, numerical efficiency
