Results / Slice Plots

Display results in cross sections. Duration: 6:31

Slice plots are a postprocessing tool that can be applied to your COMSOL Multiphysics® simulations that are modeled in 3D. You can use a Slice plot to display a quantity on one or more cross-sectional areas within your 3D domain, usually to visualize the change in a variable throughout the domain.

Watch the video to learn how to use Slice plots to fit the needs of your model. For the heat sink model we demonstrate here, we can add a Slice plot to show the temperature changing with distance from the heat sink, or the velocity of the air changing as it flows through the channel.
