Heat Transfer PDEs and Boundary Conditions

Heat transfer is a discipline of thermal engineering that is concerned with the movement of energy. The driving force behind a heat transfer is temperature differences.


HeatTransferPDEComponent model conservative and non-conservative heat transfer

HeatFluxValue model heat flow through a boundary

HeatInsulationValue model thermal insulation

HeatOutflowValue model a heat outlet

HeatRadiationValue model heating or cooling through radiation

HeatSymmetryValue model a boundary with mirror symmetry

HeatTemperatureCondition set a specific temperature on the boundary

HeatTransferValue model a cooling or heating flow
