The following software is a simple-to-use tool meant to be helpful in solving challenging problems in thermal analysis. It uses a MATLAB backend to solve problems of one dimensional heat conduction is mere seconds. Though only simple geometries may be studied, the speed with which computations are made and the ease with which they may be analyzed makes this a very useful tool for perform rapid verification of more complicated models, back-of-the-envelope calculations, initial design of thermostructural elements, and more.
To use the software, you must have MATLAB version 7.11 (R2010b) or higher installed, or install the MATLAB component runtime, which may be found here: http://www.sferic.com/Matlab/R14SP2/MCRInstaller.exe
This software is still in the early stages of development, so please don't hesitate to contact me if you are having problems with the software, or if you have ideas on how to improve it!
