Mentor Graphics: What they didn't teach you in engineering school about heat transfer

June 10, 2016 // By Mentor Graphics
Mentor Graphics discusses the use of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) embedded in the mechanical CAD environment to perform heat transfer analysis. The process allows designers to optimize a product mechanically for its thermal properties and Mentor includes examples of a LED luminaire and a power tool in this 2012 paper. Mentor acquired Flomerics Group plc, the original developer of FloTherm CFD software, in October 2008.
