Introduction to Thermal Simulation of Electronics
On-demand Web Seminar
In this quick 20-minute presentation, we will give you an overview of the how and why of thermal simulation of electronics. We will also give a brief history of how it all started.
Electronic Components and Systems Designers struggling with the thermal design of their products will benefit from this event which will show how the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) can improve the efficiency and reliability of their designs and reduce the need for costly prototyping.
What You Will Learn
- Thermal Design Challenges
- What is CFD
- A typical electronic design process using CFD
- Optimizing your design by focusing and refining design aspects
About the Presenter
Paul achieved his Mechanical Engineering Degree from The City University in 1987. Paul has spent the last 15 years working for Mentor Graphics Corporation, Mechanical Analysis Division (formerly Flomerics Ltd) specializing in the application of CFD to the design of the built environment and electronic equipment. Prior to this he worked for the Building Services Research and Information Association (BSRIA) in a role that covered both physically and numerical modeling.
Currently, Paul is a Senior Application Engineer in the engineering team of Mentor’s Mechanical Analysis Division, training and supporting the user base to enhance the accessibility of thermal analysis to the engineering designer. Over these many years he has gained significant experience, not only in the use of software, but also of the general design processes and the best way to apply CFD techniques to real world problems encountered by engineers’ everyday.
