Thermo-Fluidic Performance of a Hard Disk Drive

•Currently in hard disk drive industry, one nanometer of movement of slider/head along the track is appreciable amount to be taken care of by mechanical designers
•As track density increases, thermal design of HDD becomes more critical due to the effect of the temperature gradient along the components
•CFX can estimate thermal behavior of drive in system level
•CFX/Ansys would shed light on advanced mechanical development
