A Novel Approach to Reducing Heatsink Mass

Webinar 26th October, 12.00-12.45 hr – Register

A systematic approach in identifying and removing underperforming parts of a heatsink will be presented. The approach entails examination of the FloTHERM predicted thermal bottleneck distribution within the heatsink geometry, removal of a small portion of the geometry where the thermal bottleneck is lowest, simulating the new bottleneck distribution and repeating the mass removal process. The resulting chart of the change in thermal resistance against the reduction in mass will indicate what opportunities exist for mass reduced, yet still thermally efficient, heatsink topologies.
