Webinar: Managing Thermal Issues in Electronics Design with CFD
Do your designs involve the packaging of electronics within a confined space, potentially leading to thermal management problems? Join our free webinar outlining modern methods used to predict and optimise the thermal performance of electronic systems, including how this can support reliability qualification.
Date: April 24, 2013

Organizer: Wilde Analysis Ltd
Softwares: ANSYS
Type of Event: Online Event, National

In addition to the typical requirement faced by engineers 
to package electronic components and systems into 
increasingly small enclosures, avoiding failure and 
detrimental performance due to overheating is particularly 
challenging when:

* Other considerations preclude the use of fans and place 
restrictions on grille design
* Your rack-mounted module is competing for air flow in a 
crowded chassis
* You need to design against fan outage

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is an invaluable 
technique to quantify component temperatures and visualise 
air flow. ANSYS Icepak is a CFD-based simulation tool 
specifically designed for the electronics industry, 
enabling engineers to maximise the use of available air 
flows and keep temperature-sensitive components within an 
acceptable envelope.
