Heat Radiation Simulations

Understanding heat transfer and its interaction with other physics is central to verifying and optimizing products and system designs. For example, thermal characteristics and mechanical performance must be considered in the development of products such as reactors and electronic devices. Changes in a temperature field can occur due to heat transfer by conduction, convection, and radiation, which is the specific topic of this webinar.

What is radiation? When should you include it in your model? What is needed to create an accurate simulation? These are some of the questions we will address, in addition to showing a live demo of modeling radiation in COMSOL Multiphysics. The webinar will conclude with a Q&A session.
