13.78.1. Other Applicable Sections

Heat Flow describes the derivation of the thermal element matrices and load vectors as well as heat flux evaluations.

13.78.2. Assumptions and Restrictions

A dropped midside node implies that the edge is straight and that the temperature varies linearly along that edge.
