The Heat Is On: Modeling Temperature Distribution in a Sauna
How long does it take for a dry sauna to heat up? Here, we use heat transfer and fluid flow modeling to find the answer.
Modeling the Pulsed Laser Heating of Semitransparent Materials
Laser light is often used to rapidly heat materials within the semiconductor processing industry. Here, we explore this method with heat transfer simulation.
Intro to Modeling Transient Heating of Solids in COMSOL Multiphysics®
Transient heat transfer models are easy to set up and solve, but the interpretation of their results can lead to confusion. Here, we explore this scenario with a simple heat transfer model.
Computing Orbital Heat Loads with COMSOL Multiphysics®
As of version 6.1, the Heat Transfer Module includes a new interface for defining satellite orbit and orientation, orbital maneuvers, and varying planetary properties.
Analyzing Thermal Distribution in a Li-Ion Battery Pack
Deviating from optimal operating temperatures in a Li-ion battery pack can cause performance losses or even failure. Learn how to optimize the power design to control the temperature distribution.
Model Balanced Heat Transfer, Bake a Better Apple Pie
Happy Pi Day! Here, we go over the best ingredient to use when preparing an apple pie, as well as how to model the heat transfer process that occurs in a pie as it is being baked in an oven.
Introduction to Modeling Evaporative Cooling
From meteorology to food processing, evaporation has many industrial and scientific applications. Here, we give an introduction to modeling evaporation with the Heat Transfer Module.
