Lack of delphi models in FloEFD seems to exclude it from consideration unfortunately Btw, as a customer I would love to be able to easily access more technical documents describing each product in general. Though on that note I would say that EFD is more receptive to improving product features where XT appears to be more stagnant in this area. Since gamma rays pass through opaque solids they are not really considered in FloEFD as radiation in opaque solids are only interacting with the solids surface reflection or emission. FloTHERM is very fast and ideal for everything more square shaped like big server racks or anything boxy. It is still evolving as the current version is 2. What do you need the wavelength dependency in the absorption for?

If you are interested then you can always have a try of it by contacting one of the Mentor offices or resellers, depending on where you are based.
NAFEMS – FloTherm PCB
FloEFD is capable of handling such radiation cases in detail but lacks the Delphi model for chips. Since gamma rays pass through opaque solids they are not really considered in FloEFD as radiation in opaque solids are only interacting with the solids surface reflection or emission. It is like test driving a car.
But you are correct, Flotnerm doesn’t create smart parts.
FloTHERM PCB – PCB thermal design software – Mentor Graphics – 金宝搏
Often the features have to be validated in the field first as well as the GUI adopted as they are flothherm the same and some features will probably never come to the other tool as they are simply not needed or never requested by the users. Yes, there will be some lenses, filters and windows and it would be great if we could use one software to do electronics, conjugate heat transfer, phase changes and radiation phenomena, and do it fast with concurrent approach But I guess FloEFD’s LED extension is there for thermal analysis and it won’t be possible to check if for example our housing will suffice in protection against gamma rays right?
I just cannot tell about the specific boundary condition types. There are many idfference too many to go into open ended.

EFD was originally a flow solver and has evolved over time. The things he didn’t like was that: July 5, So each smart part will have a local mesh setting available and of course the way to specify the mesh by the look of the GUI is different. I talked about XT among my colleagues and it turned out one of them has evaluated it for about a month.
In summary he had mixed feelings about XT – very good idea but flother refined yet. It’s like learning to drive stick if you are used to automatic: It looks to me that FlothermXT is an advanced version of Flotherm, but it would be surprising if Mentor would still work on Flotherm in case Flotherm XT was just better, so I am wondering if you could name any cases where flotherm can do pdb than Flotherm XT.
Though on that note I would say that EFD is more receptive to improving product features where XT appears to be more stagnant in this area.
Thank you Boris for your explanations.
The only way to go around the delphi model is with a detailed modeling of the chip and applying the material properties but that requires of course detailed knowledge of the chip and its materials. Do you have glass semi-transparent solids in your assembly? Well, maybe the last one is a little bit longer But of course you are right, it’s very different from other meshing technology like cut cell although they like similar to each other and like you said not just meshing, it’s combined technology with FloEFD solver.

In V18 we got new radiation capabilities, new electronics cooling capabilities, brand new battery cooling models etc. Boris a continuation of this interesting topic.
The white paper you read eaxplains the technology a little better than the meshing and turbulence paper you can find flotjerm the Mentor Graphics website.
It is always a convergence case. You had to teach them that this is not necessary as the technology is different. FloEFD for axial and radial blower.
It looks like a great disadvantage to me, since 2-resistor models might be inaccurate. And the same the other way around. The Advanced Module has combustion, hypersonic flow and some other features which only few users need with some more advanced physics requirements. October 13, So I doubt it will help with gamma radiation. In such case it is best to talk with the engineers of the reseller or Mentor Graphics directly to get their input.
