How to Use CFD for Electronics Cooling
Posted Monday February 11 at 5:16pm
SimScale will host How to Use CFD for Electronics Cooling on February 19th.

When it comes to electronics, neglecting to effectively cool a component within a system can lead to overheating, product lifespan reduction, and even operational failure. Using fluid flow simulation (CFD), key metrics such as junction temperatures, energy consumption, energy removed and the path the heat takes out of the domain can be evaluated.

Not All Numerical Methods are Born Equal for LES
Posted Monday December 17 at 6:35pm
Prof. ZJ Wang has posted an article comparing numerical methods for Large Eddy Simulation.

Among the insights shared: "The ideal numerical method for LES should have very low dissipation AND dispersion errors over the resolvable range of wave numbers, but dissipative for non-resolvable high wave numbers. In this way, the simulation will resolve a wide turbulent spectrum, while damping out the non-resolvable small eddies to prevent energy pile-up, which can drive the simulation divergent."
