Abstract:

A computer program, with the code name TRUMP, was developed in 1965 by the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory to solve a variety of transient and steady-state conduction heat flow problems in simple or complicated geometric configurations. The purpose of this investigation was to adapt TRUMP to the Naval Postgraduate School IBM360 Model 67 computer system. Several heat conduction problems are solved with the adapted version of TRUMP and the results compare closely with the analytical solutions to these problems. The example problem inputs may be used as guides in preparing input data for future problems. Some suggestions are also given for further development of the program. Author
