Advanced engineering software could beat the brain when designing thermal solutions

By Josh Perry, Editor


The Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) recently highlighted the advanced engineering simulations used by Belgium-based Diabatix in its generative heat sink designs that utilize artificial intelligence (AI) to create unique solutions.

Engineers enter the design parameters, including manufacturing methods and materials, and tell the software what the end goal is and after various simulations it will provide the “best” solution.


“This complex approach results in complex designs, with about a thousand simulations finding the best result over several days,” the article explained. “The striking shapes are a stark contrast to the rigid order of traditional heat sinks, blobs and streaks of metal creating winding cooling channels.”


Diabatix claims that this approach improves cooling by 30 percent.


“In other sectors, the improvement over traditional heat sinks can positively affect other parameters,” the article continued. “In space applications, for example, weight savings from more efficient designs can reduce mission costs through lower fuel demand.”
