Thermal simulations play an important role in the design of many engineering applications, including internal combustion engines, turbines, heat exchangers, piping systems, and electronic components. In many cases, engineers follow a thermal analysis with a stress analysis to calculate thermal stresses (that is, stresses caused by thermal expansions or contractions).
- We analyse the effects of heat load using conduction, convection & radiation on the machine / equipment to asses the temperature distribution.
- Thermal stresses / heat exchange for thermal equipments which is a measure of their performance is assessed.
- The thermal load can be steady state / transient (time varying). Material thermal properties can be temperature dependent.
