Nearly Back to Business as Usual

I’ve not posted for a while, which is rather remiss of me. I underestimated the response we would get to our Heatsink 201 webinar, which I gather was our most popular ever, and the number of questions that people would ask. I had around 120 questions, which after removing duplicates and those to do with logistics ended up at around 80, so it took a while to answer them all. I’ll select a couple of good ones and post them and my answers next time.

If you missed the web seminar then you can view it here.

Next week I’m off to the NAFEMS UK Conference 2010 in Oxford to give a presentation on ‘CAD-embedded CFD: A Conceptual and Technological Challenge’ and take part in a panel discussion on ‘CAD-CAE Integration’.

I’m then rounding off the week with a visit to our Nottingham office to make progress on a couple of proposals that are going through the JEDEC JC15 committee. These are XML definitions for the interchange of power maps, and compact thermal models (CTMs) such as the 2-Resistor model and the DELPHI model.

After that there will be a lot to write up, but otherwise I should be more or less back to my normal routine and get to post more stuff on my blog. I have a few things planned, including an investigation into a thermal failure in a DVD player, and showcasing some of the advanced physics modelling in FloEFD to name a couple.

More hopefully sooner than later,

About John Parry

John ParryI started my career in the consultancy group at CHAM Ltd., using PHOENICS for a variety of CFD applications. From the consultancy group I moved into support, helping customers debug models, and figuring out how to model new applications. That broadened into delivering training courses and creating training material. I was invited to join Flomerics when it started in 1989 to head up Customer Services, and I jumped at the chance to work for a startup. After a few years supporting customers using FloTHERM I moved across into research, developing thermofluid models of common electronic parts, like fans and IC packages, later managing the DELPHI and SEED projects. More recently I worked with Flomerics’ Finance Director on the acquisition of MicReD, helping to integrate MicReD’s business into Flomerics Group which was great fun. Since Flomerics acquired Nika, I’ve been responsible for promoting the FloEFD suite in education, and moved into marketing. I now work as part of the Mechanical Analysis Division’s Corporate Marketing group, responsible for ElectronicsCooling Magazine and the division’s Higher Education Program. Expertise: I’m a chemical engineer by training and did a PhD in reactor design before getting involved with CFD more than 25 years ago. Visit John Parry’s Blog
