Thermal Analysis of an Electronics Enclosure: Forced Convection Simulation
In this webinar, you will learn how to run heat transfer simulations to investigate forced convection cooling in an electronic enclosure, all by running your simulations from a web browser.
SimScale offers multiple analysis types for engineering simulation including conjugate heat transfer (CHT) capabilities coupling solid and fluid domains. SimScale also leverages automated parallel computation capabilities in the cloud to yield:
Our simulation specialists guide you through evaluating the forced convection cooling performance of an enclosure design. Key design considerations that are explored include: velocity and temperature distributions across the electronics components and their dependence on ventilator inlet speeds as well as two different heat sink designs.
Co-Founder & Product Manager
With a background in computational mechanics and control technology, Alex Fischer worked for 10 years in different product and engineering roles, building a fully cloud and web-based simulation platform. He is a co-founder of SimScale, and leads the company's efforts for thermal management and electronics solutions.
“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.”
SimScale is the world’s first cloud-native SaaS engineering simulation platform, giving engineers and designers immediate access to digital prototyping early in the design stage, throughout the entire R&D cycle, and across the entire enterprise. By providing instant access to a single fluid, thermal, and structural simulation tool built on the latest cloud computing technology, SimScale has moved high-fidelity physics simulation technology from a complex and cost-prohibitive desktop application to a user-friendly web application, accessible to any designer and engineer in the world.
