Abstract:

A programming manual has been prepared for the thermal analyzing program, CINDA. The programs options offer the user a variety of methods for solution of thermal analog models presented to it in a network format. The network representation of the thermal problem is unique in that it has a one-to- one correspondence to both the physical model and the mathematical model. This analogy enables engineers quickly to construct mathematical models of complex thermophysical problems and prepare them for program input. In addition, the program contains numerous subroutines for handling interrelated complex phenomena such as sublimation diffuse radiation within enclosures simultaneous, one-dimensional, incompressible fluid flow including valving and transport delay effects etc. It can handle all three types of heat transfer-- conduction, convection, and radiation.
