Phase Change (PCM) Sample Model

Description: 

It is easy to correctly model the energy in phase change materials with the simple table input in Thermal Desktop thermophysical properties. This sample problem was created to show how to create a phase change material and use it in a model. 

A transmitter is attached to a convectively cooled plate. The transmitter has variable heat output over time, and a phase change material is used to damped the thermal response.

This is a great opportunity to request a demonstration of a modeling technique, ask a general question, or just see what comes up. The topics covered will be driven by questions submitted when you register. We will respond to all questions during the study hall, as time permits, or through our support system, whichever is more appropriate. Questions submitted within a week of the session may be deferred to a later session. Click on the registration link below for dates, times, and to submit your questions.

We are offering two online classes in July: Introduction to Thermal Desktop and Introduction to RadCAD. The training uses lectures and demonstrations to introduce you to basic Thermal Desktop and RadCAD usage. Hands-on tutorials provide practice building models and interpreting results (tutorials are completed by students outside of the online class time).
