8 Questions to Ask When Building Your Thermal Model

Thermal modeling can be particularly challenging because setting up your thermal simulation can be different every time. Meanwhile, you seek to balance competing priorities within your design. "It should be lightweight! Durable! Affordable!" the list of hopeful attributes is extensive so some compromise will have to occur. You can better decide where those accommodations can be made with an accurate thermal model. ...

How to Overcome the Challenges of Exhaust Simulation

The automotive industry has been struggling to accurately predict the thermal performance of a vehicle’s exhaust system for the better part of 15 years. Due to the internal gas flow complexity inherent in a vehicle’s exhaust system, it has historically been one of the most difficult systems to model and predict — and among the most expensive due to the computational requirements....

Plume Modeling with MuSES

Simulation of plumes in infrared bands can reveal significant radiance information, depending on the operational state of vehicles, ships, or aircraft. For example, a plume can increase the size and/or signature of a target significantly.  Imagine a plume rising vertically from the smokestack of a...
