This code illustrates how to convert an analytical solution from polar coordinates to cartesian coordinates and subsequently be used to initialize a fluent simulation. This only works for 2d simulations.

Standalone C code that solves the two-dimensional heat equation. Contains a bunch of useful functions for creating 2D arrays in C using pointers.
