HEDSATS: High Energy Density Semi-Analytical Thermal Solutions

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    HEDSATS is a mathematical simulation library designed for the modelling of
    the 3D transient heat equation due to the application of various distributed volumetric heat sources, representative of advanced manufacturing processes. The library constructs 3D solutions using one dimensional Green's functions, convoluted by the heat distribution in orthogonal domains. These solutions allow the thermal history to be computed, free from numerical discretisation errors, with representative boundary and initial conditions. Example applications calling various HEDSATS functions are provided that predict the transient temperature field in electron beam, arc and friction stir welding processes. HEDSATS is released under the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL v3.0), and its source code is available on github.
