The inverse heat transfer methods developed in the present thesis include the conjugate-gradient method (CGM), simplified conjugate-gradient method (SCGM), and automatic-filter scheme (AFS). Firstly, the CGM method is modified and categorized into two types: polynomial-function approach and point-by-point approach to extend its feasibility in (1) shape identification for the ice layer within the cylindrical capsules in cold storage system based on the temperature data on the outer surface of these capsules, (2) predictions of inner temperature distribution at the interface between the carbon plate and the membrane electrode assembly of a proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC), and (3) shape design of slider surfaces to meet the specified load demands.
The CGM is limited in the definition of objective function form. Thus it is not applied to problems with a more general objective function definition. In order to overcome the limitation, the SCGM method is presented by modifying the CGM method. The capability of the SCGM in identifing the boundary of the inner voids in the solid bodies based on the thermal data is tested by several test cases.
In addition, in the thesis a novel inverse heat transfer method is proposed, which incorporates an automatic-filter scheme (AFS) with the CGM method, for identifying shapes, positions, and temperature of heating elements embedded in a rectangular package. The identification is simply based on the upper surface temperature data of the rectangular package. Shapes of the heating elements are visualized by using node-matrix images. In this manner, numerical grid generation is not required and without overwhelming mathematical manipulation, and therefore the form of objective function with this method becomes more flexible.
