Multiphysics analysis of heat sinks from nTop in Ansys
Published on June 17, 2020
Detailed verification of designs in trusted FEA and CAE tools is essential during the development of engineering products. nTop integrates easily with all state-of-the-art analysis tools to allow you to verify the performance of your advanced geometries.
In this nTop Live, Ryan O’Hara, Technical Director of Aerospace and Defense at nTop, demonstrates how an advanced electrical heat sink generated in nTop can be quickly and easily exported to Ansys for detailed analysis.
Watch this video to learn how to:
- Correctly prepare and export your nTop designs for CAE and FEA
- Run a quick analysis of an electrical heat sink using Ansys Discovery Live
- Perform a detailed analysis of the same heat sink in Ansys Mechanical
The design of this advanced heat sink is covered in part 1 of the series.
