Efficiently using electronics cooling CFD simulation and FEA analysis

Thermo-mechanical analysis of electronics with CFD and FEA simulation --Simcenter Flotherm XT, Simcenter FLOEFD & Simcenter 3D

The reliability of electronic devices has generally focused on temperature as a key measurable indicator. Further inspection indicates that it is a combination of thermo-mechanical effects, such as cracking of solder joints, that causes electronics reliability issues. To fully assess thermo-mechanical stresses requires a robust FEA thermo-mechanical analysis that draws on accurate 3D temperature data for thermal loads and a correct representation of mechanical behavior. This presentation focuses on the workflow to generate accurate thermo-mechanical stress results based on a transient 3D temperature field data in CFD software and seamlessly mapped to an FEA model

Please attend this webinar to learn about streamlining use of FEA analysis for thermal and thermomechanical stress analysis. This webinar focuses on workflow to generate 3D accurate transient 3D temperature field data in CFD software and seamlessly mapping that to an FEA mesh for thermomechanical stress simulation
