Numerical solution of a two-dimensional simulation on heat and mass transfer through cloth. (English) Zbl 1090.65104
Summary: This paper presents a mathematical model for heat and moisture transfer through cloth. A two-dimensional mathematical model, which considers complicated heat and mass transfer is developed. The coupled partial differential equations are created based on integrations of porous medium equations and heat, diffusion equations. A nonlinearized implicit finite-difference method is presented to find numerical solutions of the two-dimensional simulation model. Results obtained by the present method are found to agree satisfactorily with the experimental data available in the literature.
