Modeling of heat conduction via fractional derivatives

Modeling of heat conduction via fractional derivatives The modeling of heat conduction is considered by letting the time derivative, in the Cattaneo–Maxwell equation, be replaced by a derivative of fractional order. The purpose of this new approach is to overcome some drawbacks of the Cattaneo–Maxwell equation, for instance possible fluctuations which violate the non-negativity of the absolute temperature. Consistency with thermodynamics is shown to hold for a suitable free energy potential, that is in fact a functional of the summed history of the heat flux, subject to a suitable restriction on the set of admissible histories. Compatibility with wave propagation at a finite speed is investigated in connection with temperature-rate waves. It follows that though, as expected, this is the case for the Cattaneo–Maxwell equation, the model involving the fractional derivative does not allow the propagation at a finite speed. Nevertheless, this new model provides a good description of wave-like profiles in thermal propagation phenomena, whereas Fourier’s law does not. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Heat and Mass Transfer Springer Journals
