Bioheat Transfer verification
Application ID: 106561
In this model, we use the Bioheat Transfer interface to solve the Pennes bioheat transfer equation. The problem is in 1D and formulated to be dimensionless. The results are compared against analytical solutions derived in a journal paper (Ref. 1). A mesh convergence study shows that the computed solution converges to the analytical solution as number of elements increases. The model serves as a good verification for the Bioheat Transfer interface.

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.
