3D problem of heat transfer.
Thermal conductivity of metal λ = 40 W/K-m.
Convection coefficient α = 15 W/(K·m².
Ambient air temperature T0 = 20 °C.
Casserole inside temperature T = 100 °C.
Casserole pan is heated from the bottom side up to water boiling temperature. Determine the required power.
Since the geometry model is symmetrical we can reduce the simulation to only one half of the pan.
Temperature distribution in the casserole pan. Net power losses are 1200 W.
