Spherically Symmetric Transport
Application ID: 8481
This model approximates 3D spherical transport using a 1D model. Many models of industrial-transport problems allow the assumption that the problem is spherically symmetric. This assumption is of great importance because it eliminates two space coordinates to result in a 1D problem that can be computed fast with small memory requirements. The model of the transient heating of a magnetite ore pellet shows a general approach to modeling spherically symmetric transport problems using a 1D geometry.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:COMSOL Multiphysics®
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license.
