The CFD Simulation for electronics cooling is used when heat emitted by electronic components must be efficiently dissipated into the environment. With the CFD Calculation For electronics cooling, in contrast to the thermal simulation of electronic components, the ambient air emitted heat also plays a role. The CFD analysis for electronics cooling, for example, makes it possible to investigate whether fans and cooling fans dissipate the heat generated in sufficient quantities.

Flow simulation for electronics cooling for the dimensioning of housings
Often, the CFD simulation for electronics cooling also serves to ensure that the housing surrounding the electronics is correctly dimensioned. Through the CFD calculation, we represent both the flow through the housing, the flow around electronic components and the heat dissipation to the ambient air. Thus, the CFD analysis uses the plots of the streamline to depict areas in which hardly any cooling effect is to be expected (so-called dead zones).
Even areas where heat is not or poorly dissipated, e.g. by flow vortices, can be represented by means of a flow simulation for electronics cooling. The temperature representation of the cooling air in the housing depicts the temperatures of the cooling fluid in critical areas.
Within the scope of flow optimization by CFD calculation, the arrangement and cooling capacity of fans and electronic components, for example, are varied and optimized. Furthermore, CFD simulation makes it possible to check whether the housing is sufficiently dimensioned for the amount of heat emitted by the electronics. We also determine the optimum arrangement of ventilation slots in the housing by means of CFD calculations for electronics cooling.
