CFD software for conjugate heat transfer
 
What are the CFD packages that are specialized in general conjugate heat transfer (conduction, convection, radiation) ? Thank you.

MAYA provides a complete integrated thermal solution, including conduction, convection and advanced radiation (diffuse, specular, including ray-tracing) modeling capability with it's advanced CFD solution.

See www.mayahtt.com.

Any major CFD packages advertised in this forum should be able to handle.

Just about any of the CFD codes can handle the conjugate HT but each has strengths in different areas. What applications or time involvement are you looking at?

Ethan:

I am looking for application in small scale non-rectangle geometry (a few hundread microns) such as optical fibers. Do you know which CFD package has the strength is this area ? Thank you.

If you are tasked to do this type of analysis as a primary job function and the focus is on small details like the fiber you may want to consider a general purpose code like Fluent.

Otherwise if you are looking at an opto-electrical module or package you may want to consider a code like Flotherm since it offers some ease of use and business advantageous when working with customers.

I suggest taking a look at the web pages and request them to come out a do a demo or better yet take a trial. Most vendors will provide you with a short period to evaluate the software. After all almost any code can get the answer right it is just a question of how much work it requires from you to get there.
