The Altair Partner Alliance (APA) has announced that current partner TES International has made its third thermal analysis tool available through the programme. TESuite uses a hybrid approach to combine the capabilities of TES’s other software, Electroflo and Thermoflo, to provide an even more efficient product.

According to Molly Heskitt, Altair’s senior director of electronics, the addition of TESuite to the APA not only broadens the Altair thermal and electronics cooling offerings but also enhances the freedom to control and balance quality and speed. The tool is designed to help shorten simulation and design time.

TES joined the APA in September 2012, adding its first tool, Electroflo, for electronics cooling for high-power-density applications. Thermoflo came shortly after in November, bringing thermal and fluid flow analysis with use of 1D component-based modelling. Each tool contributes a set of functionality to the third software product, TESuite, to provide a complete thermal modelling and simulation environment.

Key benefits

  • TESuite is said to combine the capabilities of Electroflo and Thermoflo to bridge the gap between speed and accuracy.
  • It allows for analysis that facilitates a rapid and accurate optimisation of the cooling system and its components.
  • The risk of field failures is minimised and speed and accuracy are improved thanks to the software’s capability to include detailed 3D models of selected subsystems in an overall system model.
  • TESuite offers the capability of coupling both a rapid 1D and an accurate 3D computerised fluid dynamics analysis on components as desired by the analyst.
