Common Thermal Modeling Mistakes, Part 1
Discipline: Passive Thermal
This presentation was recorded at the Thermal & Fluids Analysis Workshop (TFAWS) on August 3rd, 2016.
This course will cover the some of the common mistakes made in thermal modeling, and how to avoid them. Thermal Desktop will be used as a platform to demonstrate many of the common errors by both new analysts as well as experienced engineers in building a thermal model. Other non-software-associated errors will also be covered. Topics covered will include common errors in assumptions, materials, configurations, radiation, orbital analysis, and common faults in problem setup, analysis case runs and record-keeping. The course should help you as an engineer to watch for these common errors in the future, and help you avoid them.
