Heat Transfer Analysis

Overview

The process of moving heat from a location where much heat exists to another location is called Heat Transfer. In physics, it is taught this is mainly accomplished one of three ways: conduction, convection or radiation.

midas NFX makes sure you are able to study these mechanisms of heat transfer on objects that are caused by thermal loads. Such loads include the following:

  • Convections
  • Radiation
  • Heat flow rates
  • Heat fluxes (heat flow per unit area)
  • Heat generation rates (heat flow per unit volume)
  • Constant temperature boundaries.


Result Types

A thermal analysis calculates the temperature distribution and related thermal quantities in a system or component. Typical thermal quantities of interest are:

  • temperature distributions
  • amount of heat lost or gained
  • thermal gradients
  • thermal fluxes


Application Examples

Thermal simulations play an important role in the design of many engineering applications, including:

  • internal combustion engines
  • turbines
  • heat exchanges
  • piping systems
  • electronic components
