A numerical solution of composite heat transfer problems using meshless method. (English) Zbl 1050.80006

This paper is devoted to the numerical study of solutions to some classes of composite heat transfer problems. The approach is essentially based on the meshless element free Galerkin method. The steady state and transient analysis of the composite problems are carried out in three-dimensional domains. The discretization of the governing equations relies upon adequate variational methods. The numerical results obtained in the present paper can be extended to complex three-dimensional problems.
