Abstract

Adaptive p-version based hierarchial finite element formulations in conjunction with a-posteriori error estimation concepts are described with emphasis on applicability for thermal modeling/analysis of structural configurations. The basic concepts and formulations of hierarchial p-version finite elements for thermal analysis are described. A-posteriori error estimation features are utilized to steer the process of adaptive refinement. Several configurations comprised of one-dimensional structures are evaluated to validate the applicability of the proposed formulations and to demonstrate the potential of the p-version adaptive formulations for thermal modeling/analysis. The methodology offers promises to be an attractive alternative to conventional finite element thermal modeling/analysis approaches.
