Computer-supported heat simulation helps select efficient thermal management

October 23, 2012 // By Julien Happich
The correct selection of suitable and efficient thermal management for electronic components or systems with different installation conditions and framework parameters is often difficult due to the complexity of the criteria to be taken into account.

To do this, Fischer Elektronik GmbH & Co. KG will be expanding its service offering with computer-supported heat simulation, effective immediately. The software used is especially geared to the thermal requirements for natural and forced convection as well as heat extraction using liquids. The physical concepts of mass retention, the pulse and energy, are behind the simulation. In addition to air and component temperatures, heat performance and flow speeds, physical effects such as turbulence, heat blasting and emission factors of different surfaces are taken into account.
