This guide starts from applications of thermal analysis and its role in simulation driven design. Fundamental concepts and principles will be introduced such as conduction, convection, radiation, linear and nonlinear heat transfer, steady state and transient analysis, etc. Finally we will discuss how to choose appropriate finite element analysis software for thermal analysis; and introduce strength of midas NFX for solving thermal problems.
This guide introduces the importance of simplification before meshing and how to do it both automatically and manually in midas NFX.

This guide talks about different ways to generate meshes in NFX. We first introduce auto-meshing: what options do we have and how to use advanced tools to control and optimize the meshes. After that we will give you an simple example of manual meshing and introduce relevant tools.
