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 example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
