Seminar :Design & Simulation Tools (Event Series No 3 : Thermal Management & Flow Analysis)

Date: 15 Sep 2010 - 15 Sep 2010

Venue: Auditorium, Level 3, SIMTech Tower Block, 71 Nanyang Drive, Singapore 638075

Thermal management and flow analysis are important points in the maintenance and control all of equipment components to within the allowable temperature limits for the different operating modes of any machine designed. This seminar will share with industry and research community the case studies from SIMTech’s projects pertaining to thermal analysis and process. Participants will gain a better understanding of the use of Solidworks with SolidWorks Flow Simulation to perform thermal and flow analysis from simple “push button” setup and review of FEA results This seminar is co-organised by SEACAD and PE COI at SIMTech.

Presentation 1 : Introduction to Thermal Analysis for Thermal Process Application

In designing any thermal process system, it is important to determine the specification of thermal  sources and thermal sinks. In this short seminar, a quick and simple method to calculate the necessary information will be presented. In addition to that, a case study of the use of Thermal-Electric Devices (TEDs) for thermal process will be discussed. The strengths and weaknesses of TEDs will be presented too.


Presentation 2 : Thermal and Flow Analysis with SolidWorks Flow  Simulation

Products are becoming more and more compact, while the performance of subsystems inside are becoming more and more powerful. Hence, 

product design with consideration of optimum flow/thermal management has become very crucial. This presentation will showcase with examples, how a software based approach helps, designers achieve cutting edge designs, upfront during the design stage.



Who Should Attend
- R&D managers, technical staff and engineers who need to perform FEA simulations of thermal management and flow
- Researchers and academic staff who are keen to learn more about the finite element method
