Computer-assisted thermal simulation for ideal heat dissipation concepts
Electronic devices and system have various different boundary parameters and mounting conditions. The selection of the optimal thermal management is often difficult. To facilitate the determining of the suitable heat dissipation concept Fischer Elektronik offers a computer-assisted thermal simulation as a service.
Considered elements in the thermal simulation
With help of the computer-assisted thermal simulation the requested characteristics of the heatsink can be exactly determined. Based on physical concepts such as conservation of mass, energy and impulse the software especially considers the thermal requirements of a free or forced convection. At the same time the system is geared to a heat dissipation with fluids. Furthermore the thermal simulation calculates physical effects such as heat radiation and turbulences. The emission factors of the different surfaces also play a role.
Advantages of a computer-assisted simulation
The computer-assisted thermal simulation is already used in the prototype development. Thus development cycles of cooling concepts can be reduced significantly. Not suitable concepts can be discarded quickly and without much material expenses. Many features and options of the simulation system also reduce the time and mechanistic investment compared to a conventional simulation in the measurement chamber.
