Circuit boards are treated by heating a stack of them under high pressure as illustrated in Problem 5.45 and described further in Problem 5.46. A finite-difference method of solution is sought with two additional considerations. First, the book is to be treated as having distributed, rather than lumped, characteristics, by using a grid spacing of ∆x = 2.36 mm with nodes at the center of the individual circuit board or plate. Second, rather than bringing the platens to 190°C in one sudden change, the heating schedule Tp(t) shown in the sketch is to be used to minimize excessive thermal stresses induced by rapidly changing thermal gradients in the vicinity of the platens.
(a) Using a time increment of ∆t = 60 s and the implicit method, find the temperature history of the midplane of the book and determine whether curing will occur (170°C for 5 min).
(b) Following the reduction of the platen temperatures to 15°C (t = 50 min), how long will it take for the midplane of the book to reach 37°C, a safe temperature at which the operator can begin unloading the press?
(c) Validate your program code by using the heating schedule of a sudden change of platen temperature from 15 to 190°C and compare results with those from an appropriate analytical solution (see Problem 5.46).
