Lumped Composite Thermal Barrier with Shells

Application ID: 98881

This example is a variant of the Composite Thermal Barrier tutorial and shows how to set up multiple sandwiched thin layers with different thermal conductivities in two different ways. First, the composite is modeled as a 3D object. In the second approach the Lumped Thermal System physics interface is used to avoid resolving the thin domains by use of a thermal circuit modeling. In addition, the top and bottom parts of the steel column are represented with two shells.

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