Non-Isothermal MEMS Heat Exchanger
Application ID: 516
The example concerns a stainless-steel MEMS heat exchanger, which you can find in lab-on-a-chip devices in biotechnology and in microreactors such as for micro fuel cells. This model examines the heat exchanger in 3D, and it involves heat transfer through both convection and conduction.
The model solves for the temperature and heat flux in the device and investigate the convective term’s influence on the heat exchange.
This model is included as an example in the following products:Heat Transfer Module
however additional products may be needed to reproduce it. This example may be created and run 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.
