Thermal management

Use digital prototyping for your thermal management designs to create one physical prototype for validation. Thermal management solver capabilities in Autodesk CFD include all modes of heat transfer from solid to solid or from solid to fluid.

The finite element approach solves for the temperature at the surface, allowing easy and accurate mapping to Simulation Mechanical software or another vendor's FEA tool. Use runtime temperature to solve for thermal expansion/contraction and ultimately thermal stress.

Thermal management also helps you to compare temperature results to thermal cameras by changing the color scale, reporting not only on temperatures, but also on thermal comfort for built environments.

Heat flux helps you to understand surface efficiency in solid to fluid heat transfer, as well as solar shadowing. Drive innovation and explore many different thermal management strategies before committing to one.
