FloTHERM Hands-On Workshop
FloTHERM is a 3D CFD software that can predicts airflow and heat transfer in and around electronic equipment, including the coupled effects of conduction, convection and radiation.
Please join EDA Direct & Mentor Graphics for a complimentary half-day "Hands-on" workshop to learn more about using FloTHERM. You will gain insight through hands-on exercises using FloTHERM, and benefit from small classroom interactions. A light lunch will be provided for all attendees.
To request your complimentary seat, please register today! A confirmation will be provided by EDA Direct to all registrants. This event is presented by EDA Direct, if you have additional questions regarding this event, please contact (888) 669-9332.
What You Will Learn
- Define and set the solution domain size and ambient conditions
- Create an enclosure, a PCB, vents and a fan
- Create a computational grid
- Obtain results for fan flow rates and velocity profiles and temperature distributions within the system
- Create parametric design changes and analyze the results
