A study of surface temperature and heat flux estimations in heating processes by solving an Inverse Heat Conduction Problem
2006 (English)Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other scientific)
The topic of this thesis is estimation of the dynamic changes of the surface temperatureand heat flux during heating processes by using an inverse method. The local transient surface temperature and heat flux of a steel slab are calculated based on measurements in the interior of the slab.
The motivations for using an inverse method may be manifold. Sometimes, especially in the field of thermal engineering, one wants to calculate the transient temperature or heat flux on the surface of a body. This body may be a slab, or billet in metallurgical applications. However, it may be the case that the surface for some reason is inaccessible to exterior measurements with the aid of some measurement device. Such a device could be a thermocouple if contact with the surface in question is possible or a pyrometer if an invasive method is preferred. Sometimes though, these kinds of devices may be an inappropriate choice. It could be the case that the installation of any such device may disturb the experiment in some way or that the environment is chemically destructive or just that the instruments might give incorrect results. In these situations one is directed to using an inverse method based on interior measurements in the body, and in which the desired temperature is calculated by a numerical procedure.
The mathematical model used was applied to experimental data from a small scale laboratory furnace as well as from a full scale industrial reheating furnace and the results verified that the method can be successfully applied to high temperature thermal applications.
