Animations

Welcome to the EXACT animation page. Because many of the solutions available in the EXACT web site are transient, visualizations of the time-evolving phenomena can provide insight and improve understanding. Please contact us if you have a heat conduction animation that you would like to share.

Two types of visualizations are available, those which: can be viewed immediately (as they run in a web browser); and, require third-party software.

  1. For immediate viewing:
    1. Green’s function X10 (K. Cole, University of Nebraska, Lincoln, NE)
    2. Green’s function X20 (K. Cole, University of Nebraska, Lincoln, NE)
    3. Temperature X00T5 (K. Cole, University of Nebraska, Lincoln, NE)
  2. The following animations require Wolfram-research CDF player. A short video is available with a preview of one animation and brief instructions on how to get CDF player.
    1. GF_Library_Diffusion.cdf including several 1D cases (XIJ) and three 2D cases X00Y00, X00Y20, and X21Y21 (Brian Vick, Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA).
    2. XKJ B11G1T1.cdf, Transient 1D conduction in the plane wall with boundaries of type 1, 2 or 3 (Brian Vick, Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA)
    3. XJ0B10T0.cdf, transient 1D conduction in the semi-infinite body with boundary type 1, 2, or 3 (Brian Vick, Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA)
    4. Fins.cdf, steady heat conduction in straight fins and circular fins with ends of type 1, 2 or 3 (Brian Vick, Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA)
