How We Do Thermal Analysis

In the past, thermal analysis has been mainly focused only on the performance at the component level in the free-air environment with estimated boundary conditions. However, components behave very differently in a high-power-density environments with the surrounding components.

A more accurate approach to thermal analysis and modeling is the computational fluid dynamic (CFD) approach, which takes heat transfer coefficients of the actual airflow conditions into consideration. Using CFD-based finite volume analysis software can simulate and analyze the performance of each component in the actual operating environment.

We start out by seeking answers to the following questions:

  • What is the objective of the analysis?
  • What is the easiest way to obtain those objectives?
  • What geometric specifications should be included?
  • What are the freestream and/or operating conditions?
  • What dimensionality of the spatial model is required? (1D, quasi-1D, 2D, axisymmetric, 3D)
  • What should the flow domain look like?
  • What temporal modeling is appropriate? (steady or unsteady)
  • What is the nature of the viscous flow? (inviscid, laminar, turbulent)
  • How should the gas be modeled?
