Dr. Andrew Duggleby will present on "When is computer aided engineering more than just pretty pictures?" Can CFD really give us reliable results for our thermal engineering projects? Proper analysis of a heat transfer or thermal management problem requires all the components of proper analysis: analytical, computerational and physical. From this talk you will understand when relying on CFD is enough and when it is too much and what level of doubt and skepticism you need to have about those pretty pictures.
The coolingZONE eConference series feature monthly online training taught by world class experts in thermal management and heat transfer.
Dr. Kaveh Azar will present on "Thermal Design and Characterization of Flat Miniature Heat Pipes". Micro & Mini Flat Heat Pipe (MMFHP) can be used at the base of a heat sink, coldplate or on top of an electronic package to effectively disperse the heat over the entire available surface for cooling. Therefore, they can become and attractive option for managing spreading resistance on low and high power chips when the solid is no longer adequate to address the problem. Hence, thermal design and characterization of MMFHPs requires special attention since up front design of these heat pipes play a major role not only in their thermal performance but also final cost of product. In this presentation design, manufacturing, characterization and modeling of MMFHPs will be presented. Salient issues such as the shape of the channels required to provide the best capillary and manufacturing challenges to fabricate them will be reviewed.
Jim VanGilder will talk about "Fast 3D Data Center Cooling Analysis". Do you really need a traditional CFD package to design or manage your data center under all circumstances?
Each month, two to three hours of important topics in thermal management, heat transfer, electronics cooling and thermal transport are provided for $99.00 for a month's sessions. The $99.00 fee include an unlimited access to the recorded versions and the speaker notes (when provided by the speakers). eConference topics and speakers are in place for November and December of 2012.
