COMSOL Conference 2014

Heat Transfer and Phase Change

Heat transfer and phase change can play a role in simulating just about everything. The papers, posters, and presentations on this page describe the use of multiphysics simulation for applications that require conduction, convection, and thermal radiation to model thermal-structure interaction and heat transfer.
