Analysis and solution of the illposed inverse heat conduction problem
The inverse conduction problem arises when experimental measurements are taken in the interior of a body, and it is desired to calculate temperature and heat flux values on the surface. The problem is shown to be illposed, as the solution exhibits unstable dependence on the given data functions. A special solution procedure is developed for the onedimensional case which replaces the heat conduction equation with an approximating hyperbolic equation. If viewed from a new perspective, where the roles of the spatial and time variables are interchanged, then an initial value problem for the damped wave equation is obtained. Since thismore » 
Invert 1. 0: A program for solving the nonlinear inverse heat conduction problem for onedimensional solids
INVERT 1.0 is a digital computer program written in FORTRAN IV which calculates the surface heat flux of a onedimensional solid using an interiormeasured temperature and a physical description of the solid. By using two interiormeasured temperatures, INVERT 1.0 can provide a solution for the heat flux at two surfaces, the heat flux at a boundary and the time dependent power, or the heat flux at a boundary and the time varying thermal conductivity of a material composing the solid. The analytical solution to inversion problem is described for the onedimensional cylinder, sphere, or rectangular slab. The program structure, inputmore » 
ORINC: a onedimensional implicit approach to the inverse heat conduction problem. [PWR]
The report develops an implicit solution technique to determine both the transient surface temperature and the transient surface heat flux of electrically heated rods given the power input and an ''indicated'' internal temperature during a simulated lossofcoolant accident. A digital computer program ORINC (ORNL Inverse Code) is developed which solves a onedimensional, transient, lumped parameter, implicit formulation of the conduction equation at each bundle thermocouple position in the ThermalHydraulic Test Facility (THTF).
