Heat Transfer & Phase Change Blog Posts
Material Characterization by Means of Simulation
Carbon-based materials, such as synthetic specialty graphites, are found in many industries, including solar, semiconductor, car manufacturing, ceramics, and metallurgy.
Simulating the Carburization and Quenching of a Steel Gear
Gears are typically carburized and quenched to improve their fatigue durability and wear resistance. Simulation can help determine how these processes affect the gear’s residual stress state.
Thermal Equilibrium and Nonequilibrium Heat Transfer in Porous Media
Heat transfer in porous media can occur under thermal equilibrium, such as a rock consisting of different minerals or trapped fluids, or nonequilibrium, like a thermal energy storage (TES) unit.
Verifying a HAMSTAD Benchmark for an Insulated Roof Model
Heat and moisture (HAM) transport is an important area of study for building materials and structures, as it can affect the rate and coverage area of mold growth.
Analyzing the Impact of a Melting Frozen Inclusion
One example of the effects of climate change is the melting of permafrost in northern boreal regions. In this blog post, we show an example of a melting frozen inclusion in a porous medium.
How to Simulate Control Systems Using the PID Controller Add-In
A PID controller can be used in a variety of industries. This blog post demonstrates how a PID controller add-in can be easily incorporated in two simulation examples.
Introducing the Metal Processing Module
The Metal Processing Module includes 2 interfaces for analyzing diffusive and displacive metallurgical phase transformations: Metal Phase Transformation and Austenite Decomposition.
Heat Transfer in Biological Tissue with Thermal Damage Analysis
Hepatic tumor ablation using radiofrequency heating, microwave coagulation therapy, and other cancer treatments can be studied by modeling the electromagnetic heating of biological tissues.
