Interactive Heat Transfer Simulations for Everyone

Do you teach heat conduction, convection, and radiation? Do you feel these concepts are difficult for students because they are related to invisible heat transfer processes? A unique and powerful solution is now available to help. The Concord Consortium has developed a sophisticated simulation tool for visualizing and manipulating these heat transfer mechanisms. Nearly 60 interactive simulations are available and run directly in your Web browser. To learn more about Energy2D, read Charles Xie’s introductory article “Interactive Heat Transfer Simulations for Everyone” published in the April issue of the Physics Teacher.
