Engineering Design Guide for Heat Sinks and Heat Pipes


This Webinar provides engineers with tools for effective design of heat sinks and heat pipes. It provides important guidelines for the two primary areas of air cooled heat sink design: total volume and fin design. The Webinar introduces easy ways to size your heat sink to meet your temperature rise goals and explores key design aspects used to generate ideal thickness and pitch of external fins in order to maximize heat rejection.

After proper heat sink design, the next area for improvement is reducing temperature gradients due to conduction. In this Webinar, ACT will explore using heat pipes to increase the thermal conductivity of the base material to create a more efficient heat sink.

This Webinar will provide a complete guide to designing, modeling, and implementing heat pipes into your heat sink. After completion, engineers will be able to design a more effective heat sink for high power or space limited applications.
