Thermal Bridges in Building Construction - 3D Structure Between Two Floors
Application ID: 12573
This model studies the heat conduction in a building structure separating two floors from the external environment. Four materials with distinct thermal conductivities k compose the structure. The exterior and interior boundaries are facing environments respectively at 0°C and 20°C. The lowest temperatures on internal surfaces and the heat fluxes through each surface is compared with published data.
This example corresponds to the case 3 described in the European standard EN ISO 10211:2007 for thermal bridges in building constructions.
COMSOL Multiphysics passes successfully all the test cases described by the standard and is hence classified as a three-dimensional steady-state high precision method.

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.
