I have put together an Excel spreadsheet that calculates the temperature profile through a wall that is heated by the sun. It use the matrix [K]{T} + [C]{dT/dt} = {S}, where [K] is the heat transfer, {T} is the temperature at the various nodes, [C] is the thermal capacitance of the node, and {S} is the thermal heat gain of the outer node. A copy of the spreadsheet and matrix math is attached. Th…
