When performing conjugate heat transfer simulations with CFD software, it is important to understand upfront, what kind of convection the application may be subjected to. The convection type may influence the creation of the fluid domain, selection of boundary conditions and solver settings to optimize accuracy and minimize run time.

Failure is an integral part of engineering innovation and success, and through simulation, we can innovate without the setbacks of traditional failure models. This isn’t to say that as engineers we will never fail now that simulation has become such a vital tool we can utilize, rather our failure becomes a little more digital and a lot less physical.
Whether it be finite element analysis or computational fluid dynamics, simulation technologies are crucial to designing to the highest degree. Our capabilities have come quite a long way in even just the last decade. The exponential rise of computers and the shrinking of transistors has meant that more complex simulations are becoming possible day by day. Simulation even now extends beyond just testing your design, programs are now capable of generatively designing a part based on constraints – a direct result of precise simulation.
