The function planewall_Q_ND(Fo, Bi) returns the non-dimensional heat transfer to a bounded plane wall with one edge exposed to convection (x=L) and the other adiabatic (x=0). The supplied values, Fo, Bi represent the Fourier number and Biot number respectively. The non-dimensional heat transfer is the ratio of the actual to the maximum heat transfer into the wall. A separation of variables technique is used to solve for the temperature, as explained in section 3.5.2 of Nellis and Klein.
