Abstract

In recent years there has been an extensive development of finite difference techniques for solution of the transient heat conduction equation due to the availability of high-speed digital computers. It is the purpose of this paper to investigate and compare several implicit methods for the solution of the Fourier equation with regards to truncation error, round-off error and computer time which probably are among the most important factors to be considered in choosing a method.
