Mechanical (Thermal) in Ansys Electronics Desktop (AEDT) provides a fast and efficient solution for thermal conduction only simulations in electronic design applications. The primary goal of this course is to cover the basics of working in the Mechanical (Thermal) user environment Electrical Engineers and Designers who wish to perform a quick and efficient thermal conduction only analysis for their designs with minimum mesh and solve setup time, without resorting to a complete flow and conjugate heat transfer solution from Icepak would highly benefit from this course. However, Thermal or Mechanical Engineers having similar requirements would also find this course useful.
Students will be introduced to the basics of FEM-based thermal conduction only solutions through a combination of lectures and workshops and examples/demonstrations. The lectures and examples/demos are covered during the online sessions while the workshops are to be completed independently between online sessions. The online sessions include ample Q&A time to discuss questions, comments and feedback related to the workshops.
