## Heat Induced Stress in a Brake Disc

## Heat Induced Stress in a Brake Disc

This multiphysics model examines temperature and heat induced stresses for one braking cycle in a brake disc assembly, and involves coupling of the stress-strain and heat transfer physics modes. The braking process consists of applying a brake pad to the front part of the disc which induces heat through friction, and …

## Natural Convection in a Square Cavity

## Natural Convection in a Square Cavity

This multiphysics model illustrates natural convection effects in a unit square domain using the Boussinesq approximation. 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 …

## Flow in Porous Media

## Flow in Porous Media

Axisymmetric laminar fluid flow in a diffusor duct or reaction chamber blocked by sections of a porous material. The model features several partially active subdomains with the Brinkman equations governing the fluid flow. The flow field with and without the porous material is compared. This model is available as an …

## Heat Exchanger

## Heat Exchanger

This heat exchanger example illustrates the multiphysics modeling capabilities of FEATool. The model consists of a series of heated pipes surrounded by a fluid at a lower temperature, and features effects of both free and forced convection. Two types of physical phenomena are considered, fluid flow which is modeled by …

## Resistive Heating in a Tungsten Filament

## Resistive Heating in a Tungsten Filament

This example models resistive Joule heating where the resulting current from an applied electric potential will heat a thin spiral shaped Tungsten wire, such as can be found in incandescent light bulbs. The filament reaches an equilibrium temperature where the internal heat generation is balanced by radiative heat loss …
