CFD for electronics cooling…
using parameterized SmartParts for common electronic components such as fans, heatsinks, and IC packages.
The powerful FloTHERM® suite of 3D computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software predicts airflow and heat transfer, in and around electronic equipment. FloTHERM delivers right-by-design products that save design time and reduce the need for physical prototyping from components and boards to complete systems and data centers.
