Robust Numerical Solutions

ANSYS Icepak software uses state-of-the-art technology available in the ANSYS FLUENT CFD solver for thermal and fluid flow calculations. The ANSYS Icepak solver solves for fluid flow and includes all modes of heat transfer — conduction, convection and radiation — for both steady-state and transient thermal flow simulations. The solver uses a multigrid scheme to accelerate solution convergence for conjugate heat transfer problems. It provides complete mesh flexibility and allows solution of even the most complex electronic assemblies using unstructured meshes — providing robust and extremely fast solution times.
