Solving two-dimensional chemical engineering problems using the chebyshev orthogonal collocation technique

Abstract

The present paper describes how to apply the Chebyshev orthogonal collocation technique to solve steady-state and unsteady-steady two-dimensional problems. All problems are solved using one single computer algebra, Mathematica . The problems include: (1) steady-state heat transfer in a rectangular bar, (2) steady-state flow in a rectangular duct, (2) steady-state heat transfer in a cooling cylindrical pin fin, (4) steady-state heat conduction in an annulus, (5) unsteady-state heat transfer in a rectangular bar, and finally (6) unsteady-state diffusion reaction system.Whenever possible the results obtainedwith orthogonal collocation are compared to the analytical solution in order to validate the applied numerical technique. 2015 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
