Thermal Simulations

Fake it to make it


Continuously growing requirements and more and more complex applications make sophisticated preparation indispensable – in particular in regards to performance and costs optimization in markets changing more and more rapidly.

By involving thermal simulations in system development in the beginning of a development, thermal problems can be detected and eliminated at an early stage. It offers the most efficient way to visualize temperature trends and flow conditions. In a worst case scenario neglecting thermal management can lead to the complete failure of a project.

In order to help their customers reach their goals faster, EKL AG has enlarged its development department substantially and further optimized their processes. EKL AG works with the simulation software FloEFD™ manufactured by Mentor Graphics which is based on CFD methods. In combination with the latest hardware EKL AG now owns increased processing power to keep simulation times short.

Based on our long time experience in developing and simulating of cooling solutions, we have divided our services into 3 categories:

 
 Auge

Basic 

You have designed cooling solution and would like to evaluate the cooling performance?

 

 

 

 
 LineChart

 Plus

You have a finished product which reaches thermal and / or pricing limits and you would like to optimize it?

 

 

 

 
 Cogs

 Premium

You start a new development and would like to develop an optimized cooling solution at an early stage?
