Heat Transfer Simulation in Materials Processing


altThermal processes are often used to create materials with specific mechanical and physical properties for use in advanced product designs in many industries including medical products, automobiles, and aerospace. Gases or liquids are typically used to heat or cool materials via conjugate heat transfer. In this webinar, we will demonstrate the use of COMSOL Multiphysics to investigate the effect of fluid flow rate on the quenching of a hot component. Conjugate heat transfer can occur via conduction, convection and even radiation in the case of high processing temperatures and therefore represents a full-featured heat transfer and CFD application requiring multiphysics analysis for accurate simulation. A Q&A session will take place at the conclusion of the webinar.
