SOLIDWORKS Thermal Analysis

CAD-embedded SOLIDWORKS Simulation enables every designer and engineer to carry out thermal analysis at any stage of design to ensure that every component and assembly performs properly within expected temperature ranges, and spot safety issues before they arise.

Thermal analysis calculates the temperature and heat transfer within and between components in your design and its environment. This is an important consideration of design, as many products and material have temperature dependent properties. Product safety is also a consideration—if a product or component gets too hot, you may have to design a guard over it.

Thermal Analysis Overview

The heat flow through the components can be in a steady state (where the heat flow does not change over time) or transient in nature. The thermal analogy of a linear static analysis is a steady-state thermal analysis, while a dynamic structural analysis is analogous to a transient thermal analysis.

Heat transfer problems can be solved using structural and fluid flow analysis methods:

  • In a thermal structural analysis, the effect of the moving air or a moving liquid is approximated by a series of boundary conditions or loads.

  • In a thermal fluid analysis, the effect of the air or a liquid is calculated, increasing the run time but also increasing to overall solution accuracy.
