FEM Heat Transfer

Examples from this field of application are shown in the following figures.

Modeling of a micro mechanical membrane heater

Temperature distribution on the membrane for a voltage of 3V (platinum-heater on silicon nitride membrane, size 2,5mm^2).

Mean and maximum temperature on membrane vs voltage.


Modeling of a pressure sensor housing

Mises stress of membrane for a pressure of 0.5bar.

Internal pressure vs external temperature.
