1-D Green's Functions For Heat Conduction Between Semi-infinite Slabs With Perfect and Imperfect Boundary Contact
17 Jan 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Donald E. Amos
This document presents two derivations for 1-D Green's functionsfor semi-infinite slabs in contact along the boundary x=0. The case ofimperfect contact with a heat transfer coefficient h is derived and the caseof perfect contact is obtained by taking h to infinity. The two dimensionalcase with...

Computer Graphics Imagery for Motion Pictures and Commercial Advertising: The Achievement of Highly-Realistic Images
30 Jul 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Kenneth Torrance
The talk will review some of the underlying concepts from Radiation Heat Transfer that have now been implemented in synthetic images. In many cases, researchers in graphics have created algorithms that are many times faster and more detailed than the engineering algorithms from which they were...
Green's Functions For Heat Conduction in Adjacent Materials

This paper considers classical linear, transient heat conduction problems set in Regions 1 and 2 defined by the half planes x>0 and x
Heat Conduction in a Slab X55T0 and Sub-cases
21 Feb 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Donald E. Amos
A slab is heated on both faces with known fluxes which are partly dissipated by conduction into the slab, partly lost to the exterior media, and partly stored in a boundary layer with only heat capacity. This description of each boundary condition is known as a Type 5 condition and in the...
Heat Under the Microscope:
Uncovering the Microscopic Processes that Govern
11 Jul 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Austin Minnich
n this talk, I will describe our efforts to uncover the microscopic processes that govern thermal transport by phonons. In particular, I will describe how our advances in computation and experiment have enabled the first direct measurements of thermal phonon transmission coefficients at solid...
