Electronics Cooling: SimScale Demo
In this Electronics Cooling Demo & Discussion Series session, David will walk through a hands-on session for an LED lighting application in the SimScale cloud-based simulation environment. A conjugate heat transfer simulation is applied to accurately compute the thermal distribution over a passively cooled LED device with a diode junction temperature being the result of key interest.
David will show how easy it is to generate the mesh and set up the conductive, convective, and radiative cooling mechanisms in this analysis, giving designers and engineers full insight into the thermal performance of their design candidates.
David is one of the application engineers here at SimScale. He brings with him a marine engineering background as well as experience working within the CAE world. Multiphase CFD is his flavor of choice, with Heat Transfer and FEA close behind.
“We are using SimScale to drive mechanical decisions during design time. Our mechanical engineers use SimScale to test new solutions and to choose the one with a better heat distribution. In particular, we are not interested to estimate the exact temperature in critical areas but instead, we use SimScale to find bottlenecks in heat dissipation and to confirm our thermal solutions by comparing different 3D models and different materials.”
“When I started with SimScale, I knew from my previous experience how simulations are structured and work, but I had forgotten some details over the years. The great tutorials, documentation, and personal conversations with support have brought me up to date within 2 months of using SimScale. I am now well versed and use SimScale even with smaller problems to confirm my pre-calculations and to quickly compare design studies.”
SimScale is the world’s first production-ready SaaS application for engineering simulation. By providing instant access to computational fluid dynamics and finite element analysis, SimScale has moved high-fidelity physics simulation technology from a complex and cost-prohibitive desktop application only available to experts in large companies to a user-friendly web application, accessible to any designer and engineer in the world.
