[Getdp] Electro-thermal simulation with a RLC-network

Hi Nout,

of course it's possible to combine it with a thermal simulation. In fact it's quite easy.
I just quickly extended the example for doing such an electro-thermal simulation.
Please find the file attached.
The thermal material parameters are arbitrarily chosen, just to see some temperature
variation in this simulation time-frame.
You can also create a body around the cubes in Gmsh and include it in the simulation.

Best regards,

Is it possible to extend this example to cube resistors that are electro thermal simulated, thus representing the self heating of the resistor, and with the resistor cubes enclosed by a material with fixed thermal conductivity?

Hi all,

in the Wiki I've inserted two new examples regarding the usage of an electrical circuit (netlist).

The first one (SimpleResistiveNetwork) is a static simulation showing the implementation of a simple resistive circuit with
voltage- and current-sources:

The second one (SimpleRLCnetwork) is a transient simulation with also an inductor and a capacitor in the network:

Please let me know if there are further questions / remarks (or if you find it helpful ;-).
