Area Scaling Factor in Heat Transfer in Shells
Application ID: 103171
This tutorial model demonstrates the use of the Area Scaling Factor (ASF) in the Heat Transfer in Shells interface, to account for the curvature of the layers when applying heat fluxes and heat sources. The results obtained with the Heat Transfer in Shells interface applied to a boundary (with extra dimension) are compared with those obtained with the Heat Transfer in Solids interface on the equivalent solid geometry.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
