Silica Glass Block Coated with a Copper Layer

Application ID: 452

In this time-dependent model, a silica block of glass, coated with a thin copper layer is subjected to a heat flux. Copper is a highly conductive material, while the silica glass is of poor thermal conductivity, which sets up an highly-varied temperature differential.

The model must therefore account for a highly conductive layer. This is done, using a the Highly Conductive Layer feature in the Heat Transfer interface from the Heat Transfer Module.

For comparison, we’ve included the same model with a copper layer as a 2D domain. In this case, the copper domain requires a very dense mesh.

This model is included as an example in the following products:
