Heat Transfer Components
This library contains components to model one-dimensional heat transfer with lumped elements. This allows you to model heat transfer in machines, provided that the parameters of the lumped elements (for example, the heat capacity of a part) can be determined by measurements. Calculating the lumped element parameters from certain analytic formulas may not be possible because of the complex geometries and the large amount of materials used in machines.
Body Radiation - lumped thermal element for radiation heat transfer
Convection - lumped thermal element for heat convection
Convective Resistor - lumped thermal element for heat convection with input thermal resistance
Heat Capacitor - lumped thermal element storing heat
Thermal Conductor - lumped thermal element transporting heat without storing it
Thermal Resistor - lumped thermal element transporting heat without storing it
