Fins have been used historically as reliable design features for thermal management, which continues to be an important problem in engineering today. This book develops heat transfer models for progressively complex fin designs. Mathematicians, engineers, and analysts may equally benefit from the content as it provides the reader with numerical and analytical tools to approach general and thermal management heat transfer problems. The main focus is on the COMSOL® Multiphysics Heat Transfer module; however, the fundamentals may be applied to other commercial packages such as ANSYS® and AbaqusTM. The content can be utilized in a variety of engineering disciplines including mechanical, aerospace, biomedical, chemical, civil, and electrical, etc.


+Includes numerous example models that enable the reader to implement conceptual material in practical scenarios with broad industrial applications
+Uses COMSOL Multiphysics® version 5.3 in combination with the Heat Transfer Module to set up and carry out the numerical analysis for the models presented in the book
+Presents mathematical methods related to the problems
+Includes a companion disc with models and custom apps created with COMSOL Application Builder (available by emailing info @ merclearning.com with proof of purchase if e-version)
