Course Content

Day 1, 8:30am – 5:00pm

In this two-day course, attendees will be led through use of COMSOL Multiphysics to perform analysis of heat transfer phenomena. On day 1, the following items will be covered:

  • The fundamental principles governing heat transfer analysis
  • Set up of heat transfer analyses in COMSOL
  • Analysis of conductive heat transfer in materials with anisotropic thermal conductivity
  • Analysis of convective cooling using heat flux boundary conditions
  • Analysis of convective cooling using fluid flow conditions
  • Use of infinite elements in heat transfer problems
Day 2, 8:30am – 5:00pm

The second day will cover radiative heat transfer and obtaining converged solution using practical examples. The following specialized heat transfer conditions will be examined:

  • Heat transfer with phase change
  • Evaporation and condensation
  • Heat transfer in biological systems (e.g., thermal tissue ablation)
  • Heat transfer in piping systems
