This thesis used the study of Heat Transfer and COMSOL Multiphysics software as a reference which was made for the purpose of future education in engineering field. The main objective is to apply the COMSOL Multiphysics software into heat transfer processes. It consisted of a general view of three mechanisms of heat transfer: conduction, convection and radiation, which were presented in this thesis. It presented two methods of the performance to solve the three basic heat transfer problems. A simulation of radiator’s heat transfer process was performed by COMSOL Multiphysics in order to calculate the heat transfer rate. The final results shown that by reducing the thickness of radiator, it can increase the heat transfer rate. The author concluded that by reducing the thickness of radiator does not only increase the heat transfer rate but also save costs from material expenses.
