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.

The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on the physics interfaces that define it. Particular physics interfaces may be common to several products (see the Specification Chart for more details). To determine the right combination of products for your project, you should evaluate all of your needs in light of each product's capabilities, consultation with the COMSOL Sales and Support teams, and the use of an evaluation license.
