Abstract: Abstract A new finite element model named Corrected Slice Method (CSM) has been developed to cope with three‐dimensional vacuum cooling calibrator problems. Such problems appear whenever the cooling channel lay‐out comprises transverse channels in the calibrator. The CSM is an extension of the 2D approach (8), which takes into account the axial heat fluxes within the calibrator. The proposed model was validated by comparing the numerical results obtained on a test problem with a rigorous finite element approa…
