This book guides the reader through the subject of heat transfer, covering the analytical, coding, Finite Element Analysis, and hybrid methods of thermal modeling. Cylindrical pipes are the focus of this work for their widespread use and multitude of engineering applications. The book’s primary focus is on the MATLAB® (R2021) and COMSOL® Multiphysics (5.6) software packages; however, the learning gained here can be transferred to other FEA tools. The purpose is to become familiar with the field of heat transfer modeling through numerous examples with significant applications such as transferring energy in the form of heat (and matter) in the pipes; the information can be expanded to transfer this knowledge to the constricted bodies.

FEATURES

  • Features case studies and example models which enable the reader to implement conceptual material in practical scenarios with broad industrial applications
  • Uses 3D and 2D thermal modeling examples created with COMSOL® Multiphysics version 5.6 (Heat Transfer Module) and MATLAB®

  • Includes companion files with models created with COMSOL®Multiphysics and MATLAB®

  • Guides the reader through the subject of heat transfer, covering the analytical, coding, Finite Element Analysis, and hybrid methods of thermal modeling
The companion files are also available online by emailing the publisher with proof of purchase at info@merclearning.com.
