Want to learn how to efficiently model heat transfer? Join us for this course to get an overview of the capabilities of the heat transfer interfaces in the COMSOL® software.

During the first day, we focus on conduction, from the simplest cases with homogeneous constant material properties to the most advanced cases with nonlinear anisotropic material properties. We dicuss heat transfer between solids through thermal contact and the different possibilities for defining heat sources. We also present the concept of discrete models and their coupling with classical FEM models. Finally, get a review of heat transfer in biological tissues and classical multiphysics couplings involving heat transfer.

The second day focuses on convection with an overview of the multiple kinds of nonisothermal flows: compressible and incompressible flows, forced and natural convection, as well as laminar and turbulent regimes. The particular cases of nonisothermal flow in porous media and nonisothermal flow in pipes are discussed as well. We also demonstrate how to check the energy balance using the dedicated postprocessing variables.

During the third day, we present dedicated features for heat transfer in shells and layered materials. Different approaches to modeling heat transfer with phase change are reviewed and compared, with special attention for moisture and water evaporation. Finally, we discuss how to tune the discretization, meshing, and solver configuration to improve heat transfer simulations.

The fourth day addresses radiation by reviewing and comparing the different methods for surface-to-surface radiation and radiation in participating media. In particular, the ability to define temperature- and wavelength-dependent properties is demonstrated. We show also how to include time-dependent climate data from 8000+ weather stations around the world for realistic ambient conditions.
