Abstract
The main purpose of this study is to investigate if a specific value of lambda, ×’. = k(Î”t)) exists where M, Î”t , Î”x, k, p and C p represent time step, length 2pCp(Î”x) Â² increment in x direction, coefficient thermal diffusivity, density and specific heat, respectively. The specific value is able to achieve the most desirable approximate solution for any combination of M and Ax base on the CrankNicolson scheme. A basic diffusion equation is discretized by CrankNicolson scheme and the tridiagonal matrix system is solved by Crout decomposition algorithm. All the data have been processed by diffusion equation being use in analysis to compare with the analytical solution. The specific value of the A. is not exist for any combination of Î”t and Î”x. However, the study resulted that a value of A. is happened to exist for each Î”t = 0.3Î”x which is able to ensure the approximate solution executed in the highly accuracy.
