Heat Transfer

Mar 3, 2017 Burlington, Massachusetts 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Back to Events Calendar

If you are a professional who is interested in solving heat transfer problems using COMSOL Multiphysics, this is the course for you. The Heat Transfer course will give you the opportunity to work on several hands-on exercises using COMSOL Multiphysics and the add-on Heat Transfer Module. During the 1-day course, we will cover problems such as heat transfer in solids and fluids that involve conduction, convection, radiation, and phase change. We will also touch on special topics such as heat transfer in biological tissue, porous media, and high-aspect-ratio structures such as pipes. Additionally, you will learn about multiphysics problems involving heat transfer, such as electromagnetic heating and thermal expansion.

To teach this course, we complement hands-on problem solving with discussion on relevant theory and best practices. By the end of the session, you will know how to successfully and efficiently set up heat transfer simulations using COMSOL software.

Topics Include

  • Heat conduction in stationary and moving solids
  • Heat conduction involving multiphysics
  • Bioheat transfer
  • Heat transfer in fluids: Free and forced convection
  • Heat transfer in porous media
  • Surface-to-ambient and surface-to-surface radiation
  • Radiation with wavelength-dependent emissivity
  • Radiation in participating media
  • Phase change processes

Suggested Background

This course assumes some familiarity with the basic concepts of transport phenomena, especially heat transfer and fluid dynamics. We strongly recommend that those new to COMSOL Multiphysics take the COMSOL Multiphysics Intensive Training course prior to attending this class.
