Mass Transfer from a Thin Domain

Application ID: 102931

This model demonstrates how mass transfer out from a thin domain can be approximated with a 2D model using the Out-of-Plane Flux feature. To check the validity of the 2D approximation, the equivalent 3D model is also solved. Additionally, this model illustrates how the out-of-plane thickness affects the relative error of the 2D approximation, and by how much the computational time can be decreased.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
