This webinar explores Joule heating, also called ohmic or resistive heating. Joule heating occurs when electrical currents heat a structure. This often affects material properties such as the electrical conductivity, resulting in a highly nonlinear, coupled multiphysics problem. Conductors in electronics, fuses, electric heaters, and power lines are familiar examples of where it occurs. We will explain how to set up and solve a simulation of Joule heating in COMSOL Multiphysics. The webinar includes a demonstration and concludes with a Q&A session.
