Thermal Simulation Using FloTHERM CFD Software -- A System Integrator's View



This on-demand webinar presents how FloTHERM CFD software can be used to perform thermal analysis on the detailed board and module level, box level, and rack and shelter level.

Also discussed is how FloTHERM’s Intermediate Data Format library link option is used to link between ECAD IDF files and the internal FloTHERM library. An overview of Flomerics news and thermal analysis products (at the date of original presentation) is also presented.

DURATION: 12 minutes

What You Will Learn

  • Use of Mentor’s thermal simulation software from die level up to vehicle and outdoor enclosures
  • Key design parameters to focus on at each packaging level
  • Matching fan selection to system resistance curves
  • Visualization - the key to understanding air flow
