The drive for ever-more compact products has placed increased demands on thermal efficiency. Whether preventing or facilitating heat transfer, our thermal analysis techniques makes optimisation of conductive, convective and radiant mechanisms attainable, allowing novel solutions to be quantified early in the design process.
From heat sources and boundary conditions the temperature distribution within a system computed. A critical application of the results is the affect on a structural component, due to stresses induced by expansion.
CFD techniques allow flow over a body from natural or forced convection modes to be considered whilst taking into account the changes in the material's heat transfer coefficients and the heat transferred to the fluid.
