Heat and Mass Transfer

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.
