Thermal Analysis: CFD and FEA Based Simulation

FEA & CFD Based Simulation Design Analysis Virtual prototyping MultiObjective Optimization

The effects of heat and thermal management of structures is more and more critical as performance limits are pushed further by the need to have lighter, smaller and more efficient designs. Convection, radiation and conduction loads are obvious, but the need to include the effect of power losses and thermal energy from friction and external sources such as pipe flows means that analysts need to have more tools at their disposal to simulate thermal models accurately.
We analyze system-level thermal management of vehicle component, including underhood, underbody and brake systems, and design for heat shields, electronics cooling, HVAC, hybrid systems and human thermal comfort and covers a wide range of Industries like Automotive, Aerospace, Oil and gas, marine, medical devices, heavy engineering and Industrial and consumer appliances.

Why we use Coupled FEA-CFD?

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is a powerful and well recognized tool used in the analysis of heat transfer problems. However, FEA can only analyze solid bodies and, by necessity thermal analysis with FEA is limited to conductive heat transfer. The other two types of heat transfer: convection and radiation must by approximated by boundary conditions. Modeling all three mechanisms of heat transfer without arbitrary assumption requires a combined use of FEA and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).

With using CFD based design optimization solutions serve as an important link for our clients to realize their product promise right from concept to realization. Our team of CFD engineers in conjunction with experienced FEA Engineers for FSI and complicated industrial multiphysics problem is delivering solutions to major engineering verticals globally.
