|SMAP-T2 is an advanced
two-dimensional finite element computer program developed for the nonlinear heat
conduction analysis. SMAP-T2 is an improved follow-on to the original Thermal Analysis
Program (TEMP). The program has been applied to various types of heat conduction problems
including longterm heat flow from the high-level nuclear waste repository, power
requirements to freeze saturated backfilled soils to be used for egress/heat sinks, and
design of freezing pipes.
- Two-dimensional plane or axisymmetric 4 node isoparametric
- Models soils, rocks, concrete and other continuum media.
- Allows nonlinear thermal conductivities and heat capacities with
consideration of latent heat during the phase change.
- Models dry, saturated and partially saturated porous media.
- Freezing pipe model.
- Absorbs heat from the surrounding medium resulting in a temperature
increase in the freezing fluid.
- Boundary conditions
- Prescribed temperature
- Prescribed heat flow
- Forced convection
- Heat generating sources
- Three-time level difference scheme combined with a general
two-time level scheme.
- Efficient method of averaging heat capacity during the phase
- Nonlinear heat conduction
- Ground freezing by freezing pipe
- Heat sink
- Heat propagation from high-level nuclear waste source
