Hi,

I'm working on an project where it's in my interest to find the heat
loss to the surroundings, from the hydraulic fluid inside a hose. I have access to
Comsol Multiphysics 4.3 through work, but has only used it with mechanical simulations.

If someone could help me get started, I would be greateful Also if somone have made an simulation like this and have a .mph file, it would be very
informativ for me to view this file?!

I have attached an image of an simple straight forward hose that I want to simulate.


I will be grateful for any help you can provide.

Hello KJ87,

what you are trying to do is what COMSOL calls Multiphysics coupling,
in other words you are trying to use a heat module and a flow module.

It's fairly straightforward.
I'll leave with a link to an example you can find on their website.

Hope this helps.

Best Regards,

Rui
