The Tutorial Manual serves a special role in guiding the first time users of the SVHEAT software through a typical example problem. The example is "typical" in the sense that it is not too rigorous on one hand and not too simple on the other hand.
The Tutorial Manual serves as a guide by: assisting the user with the input of data necessary to solve the boundary value problem, ii.) explaining the relevance of the solution from an engineering standpoint, and iii.) assisting with the visualization of the computer output. An attempt has been made to ascertain and respond to questions most likely to be asked by first time users of SVHEAT.
