'Orthotropic thermal condictivity on a steel plate' simulation project by bdelatti


#1

I created a new simulation project called 'Orthotropic thermal condictivity on a steel plate':

This is a demo simulation to show the temperature distribution on a steel plate using orthotropic thermal conductivity.


More of my public projects can be found here.

Description

This is a test case to show how is the temperature distribution on a 0.5 m x 0.5 m square steel plate using orthotropic thermal conductivity.

Material

Steel was used with the following thermal conductivities:

Boundary Conditions

Heat Flux

100000 w/m^2 were applied on the two highlighted surfaces in blue below:

Air Convection

Convection was applied using 293.15 K as reference temperature on the surfaces highlighted below:

Results

From the image below we can see that temperature is dissipated much better to the y direction as the conductivity is much higher compared to the x direction.
