Thermal Bridges In Building Construction - 2D Square Column

Application ID: 12569


This example studies heat transfer in a square column. Cold and hot temperature conditions are applied to the boundaries. Due to the symmetry of the problem, the geometry is simplified to half of the square. The temperature field is compared with the analytic data.

This example corresponds to the case 1 described in the European standard EN ISO 10211:2007 for thermal bridges in building constructions.

COMSOL Multiphysics passes successfully all the test cases described by the standard and is hence classified as a three-dimensional steady-state high precision method.
