Concurrent CFD for Electronics Cooling Applications Web Seminar
On-demand Web Seminar
The web seminar will show you how to prepare a model for analysis, analyze it and then evaluate the results. It will also show you the ease with which you can conduct "what-if" analysis by simply modifying the geometry and viewing the results for the new model.
FloEFD is Concurrent CFD. Analyze as you design and speed up your workflow. FloEFD is a full-featured 3D fluid flow, heat transfer analysis package that is both fast to learn and fast to use because it doesn’t come with the numerical complexity and meshing overheads of traditional high-end CFD. During this webinar we will discuss the ease with which you can solve electronics cooling problems. To illustrate this point, we will conduct analysis on an electronics box and board with complex, curved geometry.
What You Will Learn
- How to create and/or leverage use of existing solid models
- Visualize analysis results inside an electronics enclosure with curved, complex geometry
- Understand the impact of design changes on air flow and temperature
About the Presenter
Travis Mikjaniec received an MS in Aerospace Engineering from Carleton University in 2006, with a research focus on rotorcraft aerodynamics and aeroelasticity. He has been with Mentor Graphics Corporation, Mechanical Analysis Division (formerly Flomerics Ltd) for 6 years specializing in the application of CFD Analysis to the design of electronics equipment. Prior to this he worked for the National Research Council of Canada's (NRC) Institute for Aerospace Research (IAR) Flight Research Laboratory focusing on flight tests and also worked at the NRC's IAR Aeroacoustic and Structural Dynamics Laboratory in experimental testing of smart structures. Travis is currently a Thermal Engineer in the Mechanical Analysis Division engineering team, training and supporting customers doing Thermal Analysis for electronic systems. Travis has experience not only in the use of software, but also of the general design processes and the best way to apply the CFD techniques solve real world problems encountered by engineers.
