Thermal Radiation Heat Transfer

Thermal Radiation: Key for Natural Convection Solutions

Thermal engineers are radiant about the effects of thermal radiation. Thermal radiation is one of three modes of heat transfer, along with convection and conduction, so the more we know about this mode of heat transfer, the more effective we can use it to optimize our thermal management solutions. What is Thermal Radiation? Thermal Radiation

Ducted Versus Bypass Flow

Flow Types in Aavid Genie: Ducted Versus Bypass Flow Aavid Genie has a few different options when it comes to defining flow for your thermal simulation.  Genie defaults to having ducted flow for all three flow types in the Flow Definition portion of a project. One flow type, standard fixed flow, has the option of

Selecting or Defining Heat Sink Materials in Aavid Genie

Aavid Genie explores 6 different heat sink types: Extruded, Bonded Fin Assembly, Brazed Fin Assembly, Folded Fin Assembly, Skived Fin, and Zipper Fin Assemblies. Defining heat sink materials is based off the heat sink’s manufacturing method. Assembled heat sinks may have limitations on how they’re joined together. Single Piece Heat Sinks Extruded Heat Sinks Extruded and

Using Thermal Interface Material: What is It and How to Use It in Aavid Genie

Thermal interface material (TIM) is a crucial part of any thermal management solution. Since it’s physically a small portion of most applications, it’s an easy component to overlook. But using thermal interface material can sometimes make or break a device and it’s associated product. Thermal Interface Material: The Space Between… Many engineers focus more on
