Steady-State 2D Heat Transfer with Conduction
Application ID: 265
This example shows a 2D steady-state thermal analysis including convection to a prescribed external (ambient) temperature. It is given as a benchmarking example.
The benchmark result for the target location is a temperature of 18.25 C. The COMSOL Multiphysics model, using a default mesh with 556 elements, gives a temperature of 18.28 C. Successive uniform refinements show a temperature of 18.26 and 18.25 C, converging toward the benchmark result.
This model is included as an example in the following products:COMSOL Multiphysics®
however additional products may be needed to reproduce it. This example may be created and run 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.
