Abstract:

In this paper we describe a pilot study in which computer algebra is used to find a closed expression of an approximation for the non-linear heat transfer in an insulation layer. In our application the insulation layer is applied to protect the Ariane 5 engine frame during launch. The approximation for the non-linear heat transfer will be used to reduce the number of nodes in the numerical computations.
