Modeling Heat Transfer in Porous Media Using COMSOL Multiphysics®

Duration: 44:42

In this archived webinar, learn how to use COMSOL Multiphysics® to model heat transfer in porous media. With the robust interfaces in the Heat Transfer Module, you can simulate heat transfer through porous media and account for the conduction and convection in the porous matrix's solid- and open-pore phases.

We walk you through performing different types of porous media simulations, including how to model evaporation and natural convection in porous media, nonisothermal flow in free and porous media flow, as well as hydrothermal and geothermal applications. In addition, we show you how to use the Local Thermal Non-Equilibrium interface, which enables you to model heat transfer through porous media on the macro scale when the temperatures in the fluid and porous matrix are not in equilibrium.
