"The triangular element is one of the many suitable elements which are used in finite difference methods as applied to conduction heat transfer. Such elements find many applications in conduction problems in Cartesian coordinates. This work proposes a new triangular element for axisymmetric conduction problems in cylindrical coordinates. The validity and workability of the networks formed by the proposed triangular elements are strengthened by selected examples. The work is completed by the application of the triangular element to an industrial problem having irregular boundaries. The results are compared with the solution obtained by the finite element method"--Abstract, page ii.
