Meshed AMP Assembly

A steady coupled fluid flow and thermal analysis of this closed-loop, liquid-filled heat exchanger. The model demonstrates the production of convective flow due to fluid buoyancy at varying temperatures as well as the effect of the resulting flow on the temperature distribution.

Simulation of pickup truck with Powerflow. Surface colored by velocity magnitude, streamlines denote airflow movement along hood, mirror and A-pillar region.

Simulation of Motorsports vehicle using Exa PowerFLOW. Streamribbons demonstrate airflow movement around tires and along body.

PowerFLOW results (bottom right) and PowerTHERM results (upper left) combine to provide engineers the opportunity to simulate and analyze accurate aero/thermal results on even the most complex geometry.

3D CFD Simulation
Few other engineering consultancies have the knowledge and experience that MIRA has of applying Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to improving the design of powertrain cooling and climate control systems and components. Examples include optimisation of: Underbonnet / underhood airflows , Exhaust and air-induction systems , Catalytic converters , Brake cooling , Ducts and registers , Heat exchangers and Simulation of windshield defrosting

Thermal performance analysis of New Class D Amp IC, which has lower heat dissipation than current amp design has been done using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis.

A steady state thermal simulation was performed to determine the following design proposals.

Case 1 : Design Comparison

Case 1a : By keeping Heat Sink size as it is, steady state thermal analysis has been carried out on current design for base line to estimate the maximum temperature at thermistor.

Case 1b : The same simulation needs to be repeated for Class D IC’s using lower heat dissipation numbers and lower heat dissipation area.
