Considering the symmetry of the weldment and the heat source, a finite element model is established by using ABAQUS software, as shown in Fig.
As shown in Figure 2(d), the heat source water outlet temperature of the SSHP was controlled at 13 to 15[degrees]C (55.4 to 59[degrees]F) and the heat source water inlet temperature of the WHP was between 12 and 16[degrees]C (53.6 and 60.8[degrees]F).
For the two separate non-isothermal analyses a fictitious heat source representing a constant sensible heat load of 3412 Btu/h (1000 W) was placed in the room.
At present, many researchers sum up many combination heat source models for numerical simulation of the temperature field of laser welding of stainless steel.
The increasing in Nusselt values comes from the contraction in flow area result from the second cylinder and the decreasing in Nusselt values at the end of heat source result from flow slowing because of the second cylinder presence.
In these cases, the flames were seen to be sustained for a major part of measurement length primarily because of mutual and collective interaction among the flames (heat source + incense sticks).
Helens' heat source? Somewhere to the east, suggests Hansen.
The maximum temperature rise of the rolling surface inside contact area [DELTA][[theta].sub.S] uses Carslaw and Jaeger's correction equation [7] for the rise in temperature due to a moving heat source. With respect to maximum oil film temperature rise [DELTA][[theta].sub.f], two types of shear heating were studied using the heating and thermal conduction models: middle plane shear heating in the plastic region and homogeneous shear heating in the viscous region.
1), useful for heating systems with low potential heat source in the city of Odessa.
Although these new portable gas burners are a safer heat source alternative, keep in mind that whenever a heat source is required in the science lab, all possible safety precautions must be in place.
