Shape Optimization of a Water Heater
Application ID: 102551
This model demonstrates how to find the optimal size and position of a water pipe in an air chamber, so that the energy absorption in the water is maximized. The objective is implemented as a constraint, so that the optimization terminates, when the desired performance is achieved.
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. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
