Modelling the Dependency of a Non-Steady Diffusion on Temperature of a Conductive Material
Keywords:Numerical Simulation, Thermal diffusivity, Temperature, Concentration, Activation Energy
The concentration of a diffusing species is a function of both time and position, u = u(x,t). The species used in this paper was a copper which was allowed to diffuse into a bar of copper (a host metal). The analytic method was used to establish the concentration of the material with the independent variables x and t.The effect of temperature on concentration and the thermal diffusivity of a material D were determined using numerical simulation. The results were showed on diverse plots at different temperatures.
