Discover how to model heat transfer in layered structures with the Heat Transfer Module, an add-on to COMSOL Multiphysics®.

In this webinar, we will give an overview of the layered structure modeling capabilities. It covers simple to advanced layered structures that are usually too thin to be explicitly represented in the geometry. We will present several topics, including:

  • Preprocessing tools to define and visualize layer thickness, orientation, and material properties
  • Definition heat sources, fluxes, temperature constraints, and multiphysics couplings
  • Dedicated postprocessing features, like volume, surface, and through-thickness plots

There will also be a live demonstration of these tools for both existing and new users of COMSOL Multiphysics®.
