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:
