Numerical Solution of a Partial Differential Equation Model of Heat Flow through the Boundary Surfaces of Poultry Shed

P. Chanthaweeroj, S. Koonprasert, E. J. Moore


This paper provides a practical overview of the Crank-Nicolson method for obtaining numerical solutions to one-dimensional, time-dependent heat conduction problems. The method has been used to determine the heat flow through the boundary surfaces of a poultry shed for the two cases of constant air temperatures outside the shed and for known time varying air temperatures outside the shed. The heat flow has also been determined for several different wall materials. The results can be used to select suitable materials for shed walls that can help maintain the good health of the poultry in the shed.
