Heat Sink Example
This example shows how STAR-CCM+ can enable you to accurately and easily explore the design space for hundreds of heat sinks:
Setup of simple heat sink simulation in STAR-CCM+
15:40-21:30 (5 min 50 seconds)
Setup of heat sink optimization case
21:30-25:25 (4 min 55 seconds)
Optimization considered designs and results
25:25-33:00 (7 min 35 seconds)
Design sweep of heat sink with alternating number of fins
33:00-34:40 (1 min 40 seconds)
Results of electronics cooling with fan/vent positioning and heat sink configurations
34:40-35:40 (1 minute)
Turbine Blade Cooling Example
Hole position and diameter is explored in a conjugate heat transfer simulation of a turbine blade to find the best performing blade (lift) that we can get under 650K.
10000 cell mesh solves in 30 seconds on 2 cores.
60 design iterations were automatically tested.
2% increase in lift
4% reduction in maximum solid temperature
Removal of one cooling hole (reduces manufacturing cost and improves reliability)
