Thermally Loaded Beam
Application ID: 240
In this example you will build and solve a 3D beam model using the 3D Beam interface.
This model shows how a thermally induced deformation of a beam is modeled. Temperature differences are applied across the top and bottom surfaces as well as the left and right surfaces of the beam.
The calculated solution is compared to the analytical solution.
This application was built using the following:Structural Mechanics Module
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on the physics interfaces that define it. Particular physics interfaces may be common to several products (see the Specification Chart for more details). To determine the right combination of products for your project, you should evaluate all of your needs in light of each product's capabilities, consultation with the COMSOL Sales and Support teams, and the use of an evaluation license.
