Phase Change in a Semi-Infinite Soil Column
Application ID: 110421
In this example, a heat-conduction problem with phase change in a porous material is solved, and the results are compared with the analytical solution, also known as the Lunardini solution.
This is the first test case from the InterFrost project. https://wiki.lsce.ipsl.fr/interfrost/doku.php?id=test_cases:one
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:
- COMSOL Multiphysics® and
- either the Heat Transfer Module, Porous Media Flow Module, or Subsurface Flow Module
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.
