Electronics Cooling CFD Trends

15 February, 2016

Today’s thermal engineer relies heavily on Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). This is a term given to the use of numerical methods to solve some form of the Navier-Stokes equations, or conservation of momentum. Software packages available on the market take these equations, couple them to those representing the conservation of mass and energy, and provide thermal engineers with a tool to address several design challenges.
