Evaluating the Thermal Performance of Lighting Solutions With Cloud-Based CFD
This webinar will present how design engineers can weigh product life-cycle and lighting performance vs. material costs for their lighting solutions. We will demonstrate how design engineers can simply and accurately evaluate how well the heat generated by LED spotlight diodes can be dissipated through heatsinks. With the junction temperature of the LEDs calculated, we will discuss how this value impacts the gradual light loss of such a lighting device. The project presented includes different heatsinks designs to be tested under passive cooling conditions.
Additionally, this webinar will showcase our newest, high performing, conjugate heat transfer solver, which was particularly adapted for electronics cooling applications, and will allow for a Q&A session for any additional queries not covered in the session.
No prior knowledge or software is required to join this webinar. All participants can get access to SimScale with all the required simulation features by creating a Community account on our website. If you are unable to attend the live session, we would still encourage you to register to receive the recording.

“We are really impressed with the SimScale platform. Thanks to the platform’s ease of use, the professional support of SimScale engineers and the perfect communication with them, we were able to efficiently perform simulations and sort out our design problems. It’s hard to imagine how much physical prototyping time and measures we saved thanks to virtual prototyping.”
“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.”
With teams in Boston and Munich, 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.
