Heat Pipe Modeling in FloCAD

This video explains how to model heat pipes using FloCAD. This class will consist mostly of presentation, with a quick demonstration of a constant-conductance heat pipe being built and solved, and then gas and a reservoir will be added to make it a VCHP.

The philosophy behind our specific approach for heat pipe simulation will be discussed in detail along with a brief explanation of the numerical approach. The types of geometries that can be generated by FloCAD pipes will be presented. Advanced topics such as LHPs (loop heat pipes), vapor chamber fins, and future expansions to CCHP/VCHP modeling will be briefly discussed.

Prerequisites:  beginner-level knowledge of SINDA and Thermal Desktop.

Thermal Desktop, RadCAD, and TD Direct in-class training

Date: September 19-22, 2017, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., daily
Location: Lakewood, CO

CRTech will be hosting introductory training for Thermal Desktop, RadCAD and TD Direct. Lecture and hands-on tutorials introduce attendees to basic Thermal Desktop and RadCAD usage and allow practice building models and interpreting results. The class will also introduce students to SpaceClaim direct modeling CAD interface and advanced meshing tools in TD Direct.

Daily Schedule

Day 1 and 2: Introduction to SINDA and Thermal Desktop
Day 3: Introduction to RadCAD
Day 4: Introduction to TD Direct
