Modeling of 3-omega Method with Frequency-Domain Analysis of Heat Transfer
Application ID: 46331
This model shows how to define a frequency-domain analysis of heat transfer. The 3-omega method uses the Cahill's equation to approximate the thermal conductivity of a sample from the measured temperature of a metal strip placed on top of it and subject to oscillating heating. The 2D model computes the temperature oscillations of the metal strip and compares the approximated thermal conductivity with the value used for the simulation.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled 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 Grille de Spécifications and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
