The braking process consists of applying a brake pad to the front part of the disc which induces heat through friction, and results in build up of stresses and strains in the brake disc. Both rotational and axial symmetry is used to reduce the computational cost.Stretching of a Thin Plate with a Hole

The plate is thin enough to satisfy the two dimensional plane stress approximation, and since both the problem and solution will be symmetric around the hole it is enough to model a quarter of the plate. The computational geometry here therefore consist of a 0.Natural Convection in a Square Cavity

The model involves a Navier-Stokes equations physics mode, representing the fluid flow with solid wall or no-slip boundary conditions everywhere. In addition a heat transfer physics mode is added to model the temperature field . The top and bottom boundaries are perfectly insulated while the left boundary is prescribed a unit temperature and the right zero.
