Anisotropic Heat Transfer Through Woven Carbon Fibers
Application ID: 16709
This model and presentation show how to model anisotropic properties of fibers in a heat transfer simulation. Because the fibers' orientation is not easy to define explicitly, the curvilinear coordinate interface is used to define the fiber orientation.
The fibers have high thermal conductivity in the fiber direction and low conductivity in the perpendicular direction.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
