Thin gap with radiation

When radiation occurs across a very narrow gap this is often well-approximated as radiation between infinite parallel plates. This model considers three aluminum plates separated by narrow air gaps. The model compares the classical approach, based on the Surface-to-Surface Radiation ... Read More

Radiative Cooling of a Glass Plate with Wavelength-Dependent Radiative Properties

A glass melt is cooled down by radiation to form the final shape. Wavelength dependence of radiative properties is considered in the first study; its effects on the temperature field is emphasized by comparison with results obtained in the second study wherein equivalent (constant) ... Read More

Thermal Bridges in Building Construction — 2D Square Column

This example studies heat transfer in a square column. Cold and hot temperature conditions are applied to the boundaries. Due to the symmetry of the problem, the geometry is simplified to half of the square. The temperature field is compared with the analytic data. This example ... Read More

Surface-to-Surface Radiation with Specular Reflection

The purpose of this model is to introduce the specular reflection in Surface-to-Surface Radiation using Ray Shooting algorithm. Different parameters are available to the user to yield better accuracy in the results when using the Ray Shooting algorithm. The model is a standard benchmark ... Read More

Heat Transfer Modeling in Cellulosic Material Oxidation

Thermally induced transformations in solids may be modeled by using an Arrhenius law to express the dependence on temperature of the transformation rate. This tutorial model shows how to use the Irreversible Transformation subfeature, available under the Solid feature of the Heat ... Read More

Gray Body

A gray body with a spherical cavity with various opening areas is simulated using the Heat Transfer, Surface-to-Surface Radiation interface. The emissivity for each case is computed and compared with the classical gray body theory. The COMSOL Multiphysics® result agrees very ... Read More

How to Improve the Performance of View Factor Computation for Surface-to-Surface Radiation

This model shows how to use the features of the Heat Transfer Module to reduce the computation time and memory usage in view factor computations. Illustrative results of speedup and memory usage reduction are given on a benchmark model. The solution is not computed, only the view ... Read More
