Stephen Ferguson - CD-adapco For electronic devices, temperature is a limiting factor. Packing technology, driven by constant consumer demand and competitive pressure, allows higher power density than current cooling technology can handle. Sustained elevated temperatures act to not only reduce component efficiency, but also to reduce product life. Effectively controlling the temperature of electronic systems, in an intelligent and sustainable manner, is therefore the key to producing smaller, more powerful and more resilient electronic devices.

Stephen Ferguson - CD-adapco The control of component and system temperatures remains one the most significant challenges in the design of electronic systems. From chip to chassis and beyond, excessive thermal loading limits the maximum performance of an electronic device and significantly increases the energy footprint of the system.

Scott Del Porte - CD-adapco SPEED software, which has been in development for the last 25 years, comprises a client base of over 1000 engineers, including many of the world’s leading manufacturers, designers, developers and users of electric machines. SPEED allows users to design electric machines such as induction motors (polyphase/1-phase), brushless permanent-magnet motors (square wave/sine wave), d.c. brush motors, switched reluctance motors, and synchronous reluctance motors. Many of the new features in SPEED are intended for generators as well. Dynamics 32 - Read more...
Stephen Ferguson - CD-adapco In June 2011, CD-adapco acquired the electric machine software, SPEED. The version 2011 release is available with over 350 enhancements. SPEED software allows users to design electric machines such as induction motors (polyphase/1- phase); brushless permanent-magnet motors (square wave/sine wave); d.c. brush motors; switched reluctance motors; and synchronous reluctance motors. Many of the new features in SPEED are intended for generators as well. With over 1500 customers using SPEED for over 20 years, they are among the leading manufacturers, designers,...
Interview with Steve Hartridge, Director, Electric & Hybrid Vehicles on CD-adapco’s unique simulation tool for the design and analysis of Li-ion batteries One year after the STAR-CCM+ Battery Simulation Module (BSM) was first released, we meet with Steve Hartridge, Director, Electric & Hybrid Vehicles at CD-adapco, for an update on this unique battery technology.

Tim Miller - CD-adapco Civilization as we know it is utterly dependent on electricity, most of which is generated in thermal power stations by large rotating machines. About 60% of all electric energy is used in electric motors driving pumps, fans, and compressors not seen by the general public. Without them we would have no water and no waste treatment. No machinery, no clothing, no transport, and no food. Without electric generators and motors, we would be set back to the 19th century. Dynamics 32 - Read more...
Alex Pope - Overview Ltd. The increased accessibility of CFD, provided in part by innovative products such as STAR-CCM+, has led to the adoption of simulation technology at many companies that have little previous experience of Computational Fluid Dynamics. In this article, Alex Pope, of Overview Limited, explains the challenges and rewards of introducing Computational Fluid Dynamics into an organization for the first time.

Sergei Shulepov - Philips, Netherlands Philips Applied Technologies assists the product divisions within Philips in development of new, and optimization of existing industrial processes and products. A number of competences at Philips Applied Technologies heavily rely upon high‑end, multi‑physics computational software. In problems related to thermo‑fluid behavior, (micro) fluidics, phase transitions, and multiphysics in general, CD‑adapco software is used. In this article, as an example of application of CD‑adapco solutions within Philips, modeling of ultra‑high pressure lamps (UHP) is...
Stephen Ferguson - CD-adapco STAR-CCM+ is a “no-compromise” solution for modeling problems in electronic cooling, allowing you to account for the influence of multiple length scales when performing cooling scenarios. However, with length scales in a typical problem scaling 11 orders of magnitude (from transistors a 10-9m to datacenters at 102m), it is neither sensible nor prudent to include them all in a single model.

Ruben Bons - CD-adapco STAR-CCM+ is one of numerous software tools that can be used for electronics thermal management simulations. Even if we narrow our focus to only 3D CFD simulation software, there still are quite a few. And I think it is fair to say that on the whole the tools do a good job. Inevitably this leads us to ask why companies use STAR-CCM+ for electronics thermal management analyses instead of any one of the others. Electronics Special Report - Read more...
