We hold at least one webinar a month here at ATS. They are always chock full of solid thermal engineering information. And by that I don’t mean just some fancy slides with examples. No. We talk about the basic calculations involved in the science (some would call “black art”) of thermal management. We talk about how to “do” thermal management.
And it’s not always about “a bigger fan”.
And one of the most helpful tools we have in our arsenal is Computational Fluid Dynamics, or CFD for short. We do alot of CFD. Its not the only analysis we do, but, it forms an important part of our design cycle and it should yours as well. Whether you are developing a thermal management solution centered around a heat sink, heat pipe, air flow, what have you, CFD can be a helpful part of the cycle. As our founder and CEO, Kaveh Azar, once noted:
“When you use CFD properly, you have an upper hand on achieving thermal management solutions faster, cheaper and more effectively,” says Dr. Azar. You spend less time on trial and error in the lab, assembling and testing prototypes and sample parts. The more you know about CFD programs, the better you can simulate the important elements and avoid wasting time and memory where it’s not needed.
I’d like to invite you to our next webinar, being held June 23rd, 2PM EST, entitled, “Tips and Techniques for Best Use of CFD for Heat Sinks and Systems Modeling” We’ll be covering some great stuff in this webinar around how we use CFD in our thermal engineering and how you can apply it to your work as well.
