Free Convection in a Water Glass

Application ID: 195

This model treats the free convection and heat transfer of a glass of cold water heated to room temperature. Initially, the glass and the water are at 5 °C and are then put on a table in a room at 25 °C.

The nonisothermal flow is coupled to heat transfer using the Heat Transfer module.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
