In summary, for tutorials on using FEMLAB to model radiation heat transfer problems, the best source is the model library documentation or the general software documentation itself. The Femlab "showroom" also contains solved cases that can be used as tutorials, and online examples are available as well. The HEAT Transfer Module is not necessary for basic heat transfer modeling.

Welcome to Pf WashU. You got the Femlab (or Comsol as it nowadays is called) model library documentation? That's one well documented and explained source, other than the general software documentation itself regarding heat transfer problems. Femlab "showroom" , http://www.comsol.com/showroom/ , contains a number of solved cases (they'll email you the models if you ask) which you could use as tutorials (+the conference CDs and like are essentially a collection of models which work well as tutorials). Some examples regarding heat transfer can be found online (by googling 'femlab heat transfer' or like) but not to the extent as in the documentation or femlab website. Yeah, you don't need the heat transfer module if you're just interested in doing "basic" heat transfer related modeling (and if you're willing to do some work in implementing your models can overcome even that "basic").

There are several resources available for learning how to model radiation heat transfer problems using FEMLAB. One option is to visit the official FEMLAB website (https://www.comsol.com/), where you can find a variety of tutorials and guides on different applications of the software. Another option is to search for online tutorials or user forums, where you can find step-by-step guides and tips from experienced users. Additionally, you may want to consider purchasing the HEAT Transfer Module, as it provides advanced features and tools specifically for heat transfer simulations. However, if you do not have access to this module, there are still plenty of resources available to help you learn and utilize FEMLAB for radiation heat transfer problems.
