In this course, students will learn how to complete Thermal Simulation in Fusion 360. This course will start with the very basics and gradually introduce the software as well as the theory. We will then jump into real world examples of how to apply these simulations in 2 very different cases. The first is for electronics heat distribution and cooling, while the second application is a 3D printed branding iron that we want to optimize.
This course includes:
- Necessary background information regarding what a thermal simulation is
- The math and theory behind the analyses
- Detailed design examples
- Applicable resources to reinforce concepts or allow the student to dig deeper
- CAD files for class examples
Learning how to conduct Thermal Analyses in Fusion 360 will benefit the student in multiple ways. Some of which include:
- Increased knowledge of Simulations and Finite Element Analysis
- Improved marketability in job market
- Enhanced Design and Analysis Skills
Most Simulation courses in the marketplace are limited to teaching how to click through the software menus, while this course teaches the "why" behind menu selections. It also covers the math behind the analysis without going into numbing details. Students will have a more thorough understanding of how to virtually test their mechanical designs to ensure their products will be successful.
