3. DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM OR FUNCTION

HEATMESH is used  to generate
geometrical  data  required  for  studies   of  heat  transfer  in
axisymmetric  structures represented  as  surfaces of  revolution.
The program consists of two distinct phases.  The first subdivides
the given parts into a nodal network and evaluates the geometrical
properties of the nodes.  The second determines adjacent nodes and
edits geometrical data for the thermal model.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The structure to be studied, represented as a
body of revolution,  is divided into parts  having common material
properties and represented as bodies  of revolution.  Each part is
then  described as  four surfaces  of  revolution subdivided  into
nodes which form a mesh.  Data for  each part are collected, i. e.
volume, area, and  part number of each node, and  node surfaces on
the  part boundary  and inside  the part  boundary.  The  distance
between the center and the midpoint of each surface of the node is
tabulated also.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

   Number of subdivisions between 1 and 50 for sides 1 and 3
   Number of subdivisions between 1 and 12 for sides 2 and 4

7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM

The input  data are  constructed
in the same manner as used in  the APT program.  Data generated by
APT can be used in HEATMESH with only minor changes.

8. RELATED AND AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

The  data generated  by  HEATMESH
are used in the difference equations of the HEATFLOW program which
solves transient heat transfer problems.
