<span style="background-color: #f3f3f3; color: #323b42;">Thermal simulation in CAD models during the early stages of product design offers numerous advantages. It helps identify and rectify heat-related issues, ensures optimal component placement, reduces costly redesigns, enhances energy efficiency, extends product lifespan, and ultimately accelerates time to market, leading to more reliable and competitive products.</span>
Thermal simulation and analysis ensure improved compliance by optimizing product performance, reliability, and safety. They help meet regulatory and compliance requirements, enhance energy efficiency, and prevent costly design revisions.
Thermal simulation and analysis enhance product reliability by identifying potential thermal stress points, optimizing materials, and mitigating overheating risks. This approach results in products that are more dependable and less prone to failures.
Thermal simulation and analysis reduce last-minute design iterations by allowing engineers to proactively refine designs, predict thermal issues, and make necessary adjustments early in the development process, saving time, costs, and avoiding delays.
Creo Ansys Simulation 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.
Designers can incorporate thermal analysis using Creo Simulation Live into their design process to adjust components to meet certain temperature requirements.
This incorporation of simulation when designing is less about going into a full range of full-fidelity simulation tools to guide your design decisions; and more about using accurate, easy-to-use studies that operate in real-time, as you edit parts of your design to quickly gauge whether something will work.
Get instant feedback on your design decisions in your CAD environment as you work. Iterate fast, with the confidence that you’ve made the best-informed decisions possible.
Integrate Ansys' capabilities for thermal, structural, and modal analyses into Creo, providing easy-to-use, high-fidelity simulations that support design refinement and validation.
Easily run structural and thermal studies together to model thermal expansion. CASA also provides powerful contact options, expanding use cases for nonlinear contact and materials.
