ANSYS Workbench Mechanical Heat Transfer
The ANSYS Heat Transfer Analysis Course covers the basics of how to use ANSYS for thermal simulations.Thermal simulations play an important role in the design of many engineering applications, including internal combustion engines, turbines, heat exchangers, piping systems, and electronic components.
In many cases, engineers follow a thermal analysis with a stress analysis to calculate thermal stresses (that is, stresses caused by thermal expansions or contractions).
A thermal simulation is undertaken to calculate the temperature distribution and related thermal quantities in a system or component. Other typical thermal quantities of interest are; the amount of heat lost or gained, thermal gradients and thermal fluxes.
The methods of modeling the three primary modes of heat transfer, convection, conduction and radiation in ANSYS are discussed in detail for both steady state and transient conditions.
The course is intended for users who are already familiar with the basic analysis procedures covered in the Introduction to ANSYS Course and is intended for analysts with a Bachelors Degree in Engineering or Science, or equivalent knowledge of Heat Transfer
Courses are also available on other specific applications. Please contact us or review our course listings for further information.
