This course is for professionals interested in solving heat transfer problems using COMSOL Multiphysics. You will have the opportunity to work on several hands-on problems covering heat transfer in solids and fluids that involve conduction, convection, radiation and phase change. We will also touch upon special topics such as heat transfer in biological tissue, porous media and high aspect ratio structures such as pipes. The course will also cover multiphysics problems involving heat transfer such as electromagnetic heating and thermal expansion. Hands-on problem solving is complemented with discussion on relevant theory and best practices for successfully and efficiently setting up heat transfer simulations.

Content Overview

  • 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.
