Demystifying LED Design for Everyday Applications with Concurrent CFD



This web seminar will show you how easy it is to set-up and analyze several LED projects using Mentor Graphics award winning Concurrent CFD tool FloEFD™.

During this webinar the presenters will discuss how easy you can solve LED’s thermal problems, helping you eliminate critical component temperatures, increase product reliability and ultimately product longevity. You will learn from demonstrations how to optimize your heat sink efficiency, reduce weight and material costs by choosing the right material from a thermal and cost point of view while assuring the color quality of the LED.

What You Will Learn

  • How concurrent CFD can help you make thermal design decisions
  • How to choose the best materials for both manufacture and cost
  • How to quickly build several design study cases and to find the optimum design
  • To quickly obtain analysis results both graphically and numerically
  • How to share the results with Microsoft Excel and Word
