Heat Transfer Solutions using COMSOL Multiphysics®

There is no reason to learn software programs through trial and error. Even though you may be capable of teaching yourself a new software program, it is a large time commitment and a less efficient way to learn tried and tested methods quickly. At AltaSim Technologies, we want you to use your time most effectively and become proficient in a new program with less frustration.

Course Content

Days 1 & 2, 12:30pm – 5:00pm

Attendees will be led through use of COMSOL Multiphysics® to perform analysis of heat transfer phenomena. The following items will be covered:

  • The fundamental principles governing heat transfer analysis
  • Set up of heat transfer analyses in COMSOL
  • Analysis of conductive heat transfer in materials with anisotropic thermal conductivity
  • Analysis of convective cooling using heat flux boundary conditions
  • Analysis of convective cooling using fluid flow conditions
  • Use of infinite elements in heat transfer problems
Days 3 & 4, 12:30pm – 5:00pm

These sessions will cover radiative heat transfer and obtaining converged solution using practical examples. The following specialized heat transfer conditions will be examined:

  • Heat transfer with phase change
  • Evaporation and condensation
  • Heat transfer in biological systems (e.g., thermal tissue ablation)
  • Heat transfer in piping systems

Who should attend

This course is intended for people who wish to analyze heat transfer behavior using COMSOL Multiphysics®. It is expected that attendees will have an existing knowledge of the structure of COMSOL Multiphysics and will possess a relevant engineering, physics, mathematics or science background.


Instruction will be performed by experienced engineers who use COMSOL Multiphysics on a daily basis to solve a wide range of complex Heat Transfer problems. Among the instructors will be:

Sergei Yushanov

Sergei has more than thirty years experience in computational analysis and specializes in analysis of problems relating to electromagnetic, vibration, plasma and acoustic phenomena, structural, piezo-electric, and heat transfer. As a Principal Engineer at AltaSim he has been instrumental in the development and application of multiphysics analysis to problems in the Automotive, Aerospace, Medical Products, Consumer Products, and Energy markets.

Josh Thomas
