Thermal analysis software, ElectroFlo, can now be downloaded on their website
The HWPA has launched a new partner, TES International. Their software, ElectroFlo, is an electronics cooling package that combines coupled thermal/electrical analysis with a user-friendly GUI to provide solutions for complex problems.
ElectroFlo is a great addition to the HWPA because it has CFD capabilities on top of its thermal analysis specialty, giving it the capacity to expand to other industries. TES will increase its traction in new markets as well as solidify its position in mature sectors by joining. Simultaneously, the HWPA’s users can utilize ElectroFlo with their existing HWU’s, thus increasing their return on investment within the HWPA. We are eager to watch TES grow within the program.
Frequency Response Analysis is used to calculate the response of a structure subject to steady state oscillatory excitation. Typical applications are NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness) analyses of vehicles, rotating machinery and transmissions. The analysis is to compute the response of the structure, which is actually transient, in a static frequency domain. The loading is sinusoidal. The loads can be forces, displacements, velocity and acceleration. The response occurs at the same frequency and damping would lead to a phase shift. The outputs from a frequency response analysis are displacements, velocities, accelerations, forces, stresses and strains. The responses are usually complex numbers that are either given as magnitude and phase angle or as real and imaginary part.
Static and Normal Modes Analysis This is an introductory course for using RADIOSS to solve static linear problems. This is a one day training with focus on understanding how to solve structural problems using a high level finite element solver, the theoretical and practical aspects of these problems are presented to provide the attendees a very good base to start using RADIOSS on their own models.

Engineering analysts are continually being asked to get more done in less time. In addition, they are overwhelmed with learning to use many individual tools that claim the ability to perform a specific task or component of a job. This further drives the need for one integrated suite of tools that can use the same licensing system to complete a process from start to finish. To address this need, Altair has implemented many complete processes that are flexible and configurable with the Altair HyperWorks Suite.
