ET Heat Sink V1.0

This module is an Excel® COM Add-in.  It has the following

  • A finned heat sink temperature distribution can be
    determined given heat sources; fin spacing, height and
    thickness; and base thickness.

  • Steady state or transient solutions are available for forced
    are natural convection.

  • Forced air can be from a fan curve; volumetric flow; or

    location, size and heat load.

  • The heat sink can be contained in a defined enclosed
    duct or completely open.

  • Temperatures on the base plate are calculated and
    charted as a contour plot.

  • A temperature animation can be charted for the transient

  • Maximum and minimum temperatures are given.
