Abstract

This paper proposes an efficient numerical method for transient heat conduction in a quasi-periodic structure with nonlinear defects. According to the physical features of transient heat conduction, a quasi-superposition principle for transient heat conduction in a quasi-periodic structure with nonlinear defects is presented, and then a new method is developed to separate the above nonlinear problem to be solved into a linear problem of a perfect periodic structure and nonlinear problems of some small-scale structures with defects. As the scale of nonlinear problem to be solved is significantly reduced and low computational resource is required, outstanding efficiency is achieved. Finally, a numerical example shows that the proposed method is effective and accurate.
