Thermal applications: principles


This chapter deals with thermal applications, Steady state Thermal and Transient Thermal, and answers the following three questions:

  • What is possible to model with Flux? (Flux capabilities, typical problem, mathematical models)
  • How is a Flux problem described? (description of material media, sources, boundary conditions…)
  • How are results analyzed with Flux? (processed quantities available, explanation of results…)

Reading advice

Additional information about thermal applications is given in the chapters concerning the linking between the following applications:

  • Electric Conduction ⇒ Thermal (conduction heating applications)
  • Magneto Harmonic ⇒ Thermal (induction heating applications)
