Fast conjugate heat transfer simulation model
We want to develop a fast conjugate heat transfer (CHT) simulation model that runs for minutes, not hours.
The slowness of OpenFOAM’s algorithm is related to weak heat transfer coupling between solid and fluid domains.

The model below uses only OpenFOAM. Subscribe to our blog and we’ll inform you when a coupled Elmer FEM and OpenFOAM model is available.
Models developed in collaboration with VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland. Juris Vencels acknowledges funding from “HPC-Europa3” (H2020, 730897) project “Numerical model development for convective cooling of electrical devices“.
