Keywords:Non-Fourier conduction, Finite element model, Composite layer, Thermal wave, Relaxation time
This paper presents the numerical analysis of non-Fourier heat conduction in thin composite layers under asymmetrical boundary conditions. In the thermal barriers such as steam and gas turbine blades, thin film coating are used to protect the blade from thermal damage. The coating on the blades are very short in length. Heat conduction across thin composite layer with short time is examined using a finite element approach. With this very small duration with the finite speed of the thermal wave, the Fourier mode of heat conduction is disappeared due to the infinite speed of the thermal wave assumption. Therefore, analyzing the non-Fourier heat conduction in thin layers is essential. The developed model is executed in Python using Newmark's scheme and the constant average acceleration method to predict the temperature variation and temperature contours. The present model is validated with an experimental and numerical solution with good agreement. Besides, the temperature distribution across the composite layer with the entire length of the substrate and the coating for different thermal conductivity values, thermal diffusivity, and relaxation time are examined. It is noted that when the dimensionless
