ABSTRACT

In this research, the variational iteration method as an approximate analytical method is utilized to overcome some inherent limitations arising as uncontrollability to the nonzero endpoint boundary conditions and is used to solve some examples in the field of heat transfer. The available exact solutions for the linear equations and the numerical solutions for the nonlinear ones are good bases to demonstrate the accuracy and efficiency of the proposed method. With the help of the method one can simply analyze the thermal characteristics of a straight rectangular fin for all possible types of heat transfer because of the explicit outputs as the successive approximate solutions.
