Heat engineering

We performed heat transfer calculations for a laser diode. The aim of the analysis was to determine the maximum heat exchange rate possible to be absorbed by means of air cooling.

The calculations showed the maximum power of the diode mounted in the laser, the required flux of air flowing through the heat sink, the direction of changes to be made in order to optimize the operation of the cooling system


Simulations of heat flow through processor cooling blocks. The goal of the project was the flow analysis of the cooling blocks for steady-state. Here, as with the diode, it was important to collect a large amount of heat from a small area. The analysis was to determine the potential that these modules have.

  • The analysis verified the cooling power of the devices
  • Indicates places where the temperature is higher than assumed
  • It allowed the calculation of the pressure drop caused by the cooling modules,
