Will it Blow? Joule Heating in a Fuse on a Circuit Board, Chapter 2
Some examples of resistive heating can involve the device reach high temperatures and so they either structurally degenerate or even melt. The design challenge is to remove this heat as effectively as possible. In this second part of the three-chapter series, you will see how to set up the physics to describe the joule heating and convection cooling of this fuse using specialized multiphysics interfaces.
