Computational simulation has become an indispensable tool for research and development. In the past it was often seen as little more than a substitute for experiment, but there are times when it yields information that is difficult to obtain directly from experiments. With progress in software and hardware it has recently become a simple matter to undertake large-scale computations.
Furukawa Electric makes use of computational simulation in any number of fields. The range in which thermal and fluid dynamics simulations are used is very wide, from the development of heat-dissipating devices and various modules to the design of equipment and cases. Here we propose to introduce examples of applications of thermal and fluid dynamics simulation to a variety of products.
