HeatFlux

DESCRIPTION

Simulates heat flow by using a forward difference time integration with a standard five-point Laplacian stencil. Outputs several temperature lattices during a single firing to simulate heat propagation in the presence of a source and sink.

This is a LatFunction-based module which can be used to replace the LatFunction module in the heat-flux sample map.

INPUTS

WIDGETS

Port: Num Iterations
Type: Slider
Number of iterations of the heat flux computation.

OUTPUTS

Port: Output
Type: Lattice
Constraints: 2-D
Constraints: float
Constraints: uniform
The temperature lattice. Several lattices are flushed on this port during a single module firing, one per iteration.
