Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to propose the Laplace Adomian Decomposition Method (LADM) for studying the nonlinear temperature and thermal stress analysis of annular fins with time-dependent boundary condition. Design/methodology/approach: The nonlinear behavior of temperature and thermal stress distribution in an annular fin with rectangular profile subjected to time-dependent periodic temperature variations at the root is studied by the LADM. The radiation effect is considered. The convective heat transfer coefficient is considered as a temperature function. Findings: The proposed solution method is helpful in overcoming the computational bottleneck commonly encountered in industry and in academia. The results show that the circumferential stress at the root of the fin will be important in the fatigue analysis. Originality/value: This study presents an effective solution method to analyze the nonlinear behavior of temperature and thermal stress distribution in an annular fin with rectangular profile subjected to time-dependent periodic temperature variations at the root by using LADM.
