Thermal Management: A Critical CFD App You Have to Get Right - Application Brief

From automobiles to high-speed semiconductors, thermal management concerns can often lead to wasted energy, reduced performance or premature device failure. This results in increased energy costs, warranty issues and additional design time that can reduce your product’s competitive advantage. Simulation can help your engineering team look deeper into thermal design issues to see where heat is being generated and how it might be impacting surrounding materials and components. Simulation enables your engineers to evaluate more options more thoroughly than traditional prototype-based design and development methods. They can confidently determine if cooling or additional heating is needed and virtually explore ways to optimize designs to meet thermal management project goals all before building a physical prototype. ANSYS thermal simulation tools provide the wide array of physical models and integration between different physical domains that you need to get thermal management right.
