Title: Fourier's Law of Heat Conduction (OLD-2014) Category: Time Independent
Summary: Simulates Fourier's Law of Heat Conduction
GitHub link: See code

Fourier's Law models the rate of heat flow through a conductor bridging a thermal difference. Allows for choice of material.


  • Temperature of hot reservoir (in Kelvin)

  • Temperature of cool reservoir (in Kelvin)

  • Conductor material (choice of copper, iron, wood)

  • Conductor area (in m2)

  • Conductor length (in m2)
