Wednesday 31st October, 10am Europe/London and 2pm US/Eastern

Event Overview

This webinar illustrates how Concurrent CFD technology can be used to investigate avionics cooling on-board a UAV helicopter. First, combined external and internal flow calculations are run to determine how the speed and pitch of the aircraft impact upon cooling system performance. Next, the avionics bay is modeled in detail to investigate alternative cooling duct designs. Finally, a zoom-in analysis is performed to predict junction temperatures for discrete electronics devices.

The entire study is performed using a single CAD model, directly in the CAD environment with no CAD translation.

What You Will Learn

  • How FloEFD can be used to investigate several different aspects of combined thermal and airflow problem
  • How FloEFD can be used to analyze multiple design variants of a single CAD model with no CAD translation required
  • How to perform a zoom-in analysis using FloEFD to rapidly investigate detailed aspects of the design problem
  • How FloEFD's built-in electronics cooling design elements can be used in the analysis of avionics components

Who Should Attend

  • Design Engineers
  • Mechanical Engineers
  • Product Design Managers
  • Engineers who are interested in a CAD-embedded analysis solution
