NAFEMS Benchmark: Two-dimensional heat transfer with convection

Problem Description

Figure 1 shows a two-dimensional heat transfer problem. The temperature of 100°C is prescribed to the edge AB. On the edges BC and CD, convection boundary conditions are applied with an ambient temperature at 0°C. The edge DA is insulated. Steady-state heat transfer analysis is carried out, and the temperature at the point E is determined.
