Application Hybricon Inc. Senior Simulation Engineer Michael Palis was given the challenge by a defense contractor customer of cooling an ATR form-factor chassis that dissipates almost 200 watts and operates at altitudes up to 50,000 feet.

Palis used thermal simulation to evaluate a wide range of possible design configurations, focusing on heat sink design and fan performance at high altitudes. The simulation helped identify several alternative designs that would meet the customerís demanding requirements. Based on Palisí recommendations, the defense contractor built the system, which performed almost exactly as predicted by the simulation.
