Problem in the use of Comsol.

  1. Dec 9, 2009 #1
    Hello,
    I wish to model with Comsol a simple situation: a plasterboard undergoes locally with one 3 ms duration a very short flash (Dirac) and I would like to see the evolution during the time of the wave of heat through volume.
    The problem it is that I do not know how to enter a function describing during time the flow received by my field.
    In which menu of Comsol is necessary it to go?
    Help me because it is very important.
    Thank you.

    It sounds like a relatively simple transient thermal analysis. Are you sure you're using a transient analysis in Comsol? Comsol has several tutorials that deal with this kind of problem...
