Study How Temperature Could Impact Your Product’s Performance
Is it too darn hot for your product? Or too cold? What adjustments do you need to make to be sure every component meets requirements?
Thermal analysis is a group of techniques that looks at how the physical properties of materials change with changes in temperature. It’s easy to see where such analysis would be essential, such as aeronautics, medical devices, or consumer electronics, but most products need some type of thermal analysis.
Creo Simulate allows you to simulate thermal conditions. A steady state thermal analysis calculates effects of constant thermal loads on a model and is used to determine temperatures, heat flow rates, and the heat fluxes in a part. A steady state analysis is often a precursor to a transient thermal analysis to determine the initial conditions. Transient thermal analysis, the most common form of thermal analysis, determines the temperature, heat storage and other thermal quantities in a model due to a time varying load.
