How to Analyze Spacecraft Thermal Performance with COMSOL®


Being able to predict and optimize designs and processes for spacecraft and satellites is critical. New advances in single-physics and fully coupled multiphysics modeling capabilities are enhancing the modeling workflow and simulation process, providing a deeper understanding of designs and processes and making the entire experience faster and more efficient. In this 60-minute Webinar, you will get an introduction to the new user interface in COMSOL Multiphysics® for satellite and spacecraft thermal modeling that makes it possible to compute albedo and planet infrared radiative loads and temperature fields over time.

Attendees will see:

  • How this interface computes the solar, albedo, and Earth infrared radiative loads as the satellite orbits and maneuvers
  • How these loads are then used to compute the temperature fields over time
  • A live demonstration

A Q&A session will follow the technical presentation.
