Flexible, Automatic Meshing

ANSYS Icepak software contains advanced meshing algorithms to automatically generate high-quality meshes that represent the true shape of electronic components. Options include hex-dominant, unstructured hexahedral and Cartesian meshing, which enable automatic generation of body-fitted meshes with minimal user intervention. The mesh density can  be localized through nonconformal interfaces, which allows inclusion of a variety of component scales within the same electronics cooling model. 

While fully automated, ANSYS Icepak contains many mesh controls that allow customization of the meshing parameters to refine the mesh and optimize the trade-off between computational cost and solution accuracy. This meshing flexibility results in the fastest solution times possible without compromising accuracy.
