Thermal Analysis

Veryst offers consulting services in thermal modeling of both solid and fluid systems, including interactions between these systems.  We have experience in modeling thermal behavior within polymer, composite, and metal components, as well as fluids.

Our simulation capabilities include thermal-structural coupling and fluid flows resulting from thermal gradients.  We solve thermal analysis problems involving conduction, natural convection, forced convection, ambient radiation, internal (cavity) radiation, radiation in participating media, phase change, natural and forced convection, thermal stresses, and conjugate heat transfer.

Veryst is also experienced with thermal analysis for medical devices, including radio frequency (RF) tissue ablation, microwave tissue ablation, and tissue damage.

Our services include:

  • Thermal analysis of polymers, composites, and metals
  • Thermal analysis of fluid flows
  • Optimization of thermal response and heat transfer efficiency
  • Analysis of failures caused by thermal effects
  • Analysis and optimization of heating/cooling devices
Temperature in the tissue and blood and flow streamlines in the blood

RF Tissue Ablation Simulation

Radio frequency tissue ablation is a commonly used and minimally invasive tissue treatment procedure. Accurately modeling this kind of coupled multiphysics problem is often challenging. Veryst developed a COMSOL Multiphysics model accounting for heat transfer, electric field, and fluid flow to study the RF tissue ablation problem where an electrode is targeting a tissue close to a blood vessel.

LED Light Bulb Heat Transfer Simulation

Both the efficiency and life of an LED bulb drop when operated at high temperature. Given the wide range of possible shapes and sizes of heat sinks, Veryst Engineering developed a rapid and effective tool to compare design alternatives and estimate LED temperatures.

Infant Incubator Thermal Modeling

The main environmental factor affecting a premature neonate is thermo-neutrality, as the baby is incapable of regulating and maintaining his/her body temperature at a constant level. Veryst developed a computational model of heat transfer inside an infant incubator to optimize its design.
