Speeding Up Natural Convection Analyses - Part 1
Posted Tue February 28, 2012 @11:38AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Announcements CD-adapco will host Best practices for simulating natural convective air flow in electronic systems on March 8th at 10am EST and again at 11am (Bangalore).

While many electronic devices have power densities that require forced air flow, a significant number of systems can still utilize solely natural (passive) convective cooling.

The reliability and quietness of passively cooled systems is especially attractive for consumer devices, so investigating these cooling options is a valuable portion of the design process. Effective investigation of natural convection cooling requires efficient simulation.

This online web seminar is the first in a two part series on natural convection analyses.

Best practices for setting up natural convection problems will be shown using STAR-CCM+. Aspects of the setup include the air volume, boundary conditions, and solution settings will be addressed in the context of several natural convection situations.

Trainers will demonstrate how using simulation tools like STAR-CCM+ can maximize the number of design variations you can investigate, so the most effective cooling options can be chosen.

Using STAR-CCM+ trainers will demonstrate how to maximize the speed of each simulation. Techniques shown will teach users to investigate more design options so the most effective cooling design can be selected.

This webinar will run in two time zones.
