Introducing Heat Transfer Modeling Software from COMSOL Multiphysics®

Duration: 1:43

Simulation software is becoming more and more prevalent in product development and design. Use the Heat Transfer Module, an add-on to the COMSOL Multiphysics® simulation platform, for modeling conduction, convection, and radiation in numerous fields and applications.

We share an example of a heat exchanger in this video to outline the modeling steps for creating a realistic simulation of nonisothermal flow. Running multiple simulations with different design parameters as well as material and thermodynamic properties saves time and money by reducing the amount of physical testing and prototyping needed.

By combining the Heat Transfer Module with other add-ons from the COMSOL® product suite, you can create advanced heat transfer simulations. The possible multiphysics phenomena include thermal contact, nonisothermal turbulent flow, heat transfer in porous media, Joule heating, microwave heating, and laser heating.
