  • 2014.10.29

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.
