Jelly Roll Using a Flattened Geometry

Application ID: 105281

This example replicates the results of the Jelly Roll tutorial example using a flattened representation of the wound spiral-based geometry. See that model entry for details on the background, original geometry, materials, and the general physics setup.

Mapping the original problem to a flattened 3d geometry brings several advantages: The curvature of the wound layers does not need to be resolved in the mesh, reducing the problem size, and results visualization along the spiral direction is facilitated.

Transport equations on the flattened geometry neglect the effect of the local curvature of the layers. This effect will however be shown to have a very limited impact on the results.

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