Design of natural convection-cooled systems for electronics and LED Lighting
. by Ruben Bons,
CD-adapco is the world's largest independent CFD-focused provider of engineering simulation software, support and services. CD-adapco's flagship software, STAR-CCM+, provides the world's most comprehensive engineering physics simulation inside a single integrated package. This session will detail the optimization capabilities in STAR-CCM+, particularly its ability to perform design exploration, design of experiments, robustness analysis, and goal-driven constrained optimization. The demonstration will show the usage of STAR-CCM+ in optimizing the flow and thermal performance of a liquid-cooled heat sink, balancing the pressure needed to drive the liquid flow with the cooling capacity provided. Specifics of the simulation workflow, typical options, and available results will be examined.
