Abstract
This paper is intended to study the model of bathtub water temperature in time and space. First of all, a differential function model is chosen as the basic model. Based on the differential function model, the new model considers factors of dissipating heat from water surface and the bathtub. Under the condition without human motions, this paper gets the model of tub water temperature in time. Then, the article solves the modified model including human motions using four-order Runge-Kutta Algorithm to make sure the accuracy of the differential function. Next, the paper obtains the complete model of tub water temperature in time. According to heat transfer theory and finite difference method, this paper develops a planar model of tub water temperature in space, and uses Gauss-Seidel iteration method to compute the solution of the model. Then, an isothermal figure is got. At last, this paper concludes that water temperature distributes almost evenly throughout the bathtub by utilizing model of bathtub water temperature in space.
