thermalex03.in : Layers with Temperature Dependent Conductivity

Requires: DevEdit 3D/Thermal 3D
Minimum Versions: Atlas 5.28.1.R

This example runs thermal simulation of a 2 layer structure with 8 power sources where the thermal conductivity of region #1 (the first layer) and region #10 (the second layer) is a function of temperature.

The structure and syntax used in this example is exactly the same as that used in the previous example with the following exception. The thermal conductivity of region #1 is defined to be dependent on temperature by the statement tcon.polynom . This sets a polynomial dependence of thermal conductivity as described in the manual.

In region #10, the thermal conductivity is set according to a simpler power law. The parameter tcon.power is used to indicate this. Parameters of the power law are set using the tc.c0 and tc.npow . Details of the equations used can be found in the models description of Thermal 3D.
