Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Course specific prerequisites

You should have a B.Sc. or equivalent in electrical engineering, engineering physics or mechanical engineering.

Aim

The participants shall know the principles of thermal optimization and cooling of electronics packaging. The participants will be introduced to the simulation tools for thermal analysis and cooling of electronics packaging. After the course the participants will know the possibilities of using thermal simulation tools and optimization tools for electronics that they may actively take part in product development.

Content

The course will consist of lectures, exercises, FEM and measurement labs. The lectures intend to give an overview of the most common problems within thermal optimisation and cooling in electronics packaging. The lectures, exercises and experimental work will cover:

· Methods for analytical and FEM modeling of heat transport
· Evaluation of different cooling strategies
· Measurement technique

Organisation

The course consists of lectures, exercises and experimental work:

· Thermal simulation and modeling using Fluent Software
· Temperature measurement of electronics circuits under various cooling conditions
