Special software improves the quality of training by processing many transactions in a short period of time, structuring learning information at different levels, organizing the presentation of information, and managing interactive communication.
The objective is to develop a training-support complex for teaching a course on Thermal Engineering when training specialists for mining and the metallurgical industry and solving common engineering problems.
The software has the following features:
– static calculation of heat flow and temperature distribution over the thickness of a flat side-wall, calculation of the side-wall layer thickness (with various boundary conditions);
– dynamic calculations of temperature redistribution, melting and side-ledge crystallization as one of the side-wall layers, when applying various impacts;
– use of embedded databases required to perform and verify calculations;
– Graphical and tabular rendering of the results.
The software makes it possible to render the results obtained using color illustrations and animated graphics, provides for conversational interaction between the user and software components, and at the same time, ensures instant control in developing the material delivered. It can be used for distance learning as well.
The software has been implemented in the C ++ Builder environment. The theory of heat transfer and numerical methods of solving ordinary differential equations were used to design the software.
The proposed software was trialed during the training of undergraduate and graduate students of the Institute of Nonferrous Metals and Materials Science of the Siberian Federal University majoring in Metallurgy, Automation of Technological Processes and Production, and Management in Technical Systems.


Multi-layered wall, ledge, heat flow, thermal conductivity, boundary conditions.
