'Heat Transfer 2' simulation project by bgeswein


I created a new simulation project called 'Heat Transfer 2':

2 body heat transfer

More of my public projects can be found here.


Hi @bgeswein,

I had a look in to your case and found some problems. First problem that wasn’t giving right results was the mesh quality. The mesh was not fine enough and specifically was not consistent over the contact area. This created a non-homogeneous temperature distribution.

But even before that, I have noticed that your geometry size in quite big i.e. diameter of approx. 100 meters. This can be due to geometry being exported in millimeters initially. I performed a scaling operation prior to creating a mesh. But this operation had no effect over the results. Better results were obtained only due to refined and consistent mesh over the contact surfaces.

In case of any question/s, feel free to ask.
