In this course, we will learn about the Ansys Lumerical HEAT solver, which can be used for thermal simulations in the finite-element multiphysics environment. We will start with the physics of the solver as well as its various modes of operation, and conclude by introducing some real-world application examples for which the HEAT solver can be used.
By the end of this course, you will:
• Have a basic understanding of the heat transport physics simulated by the HEAT solver
• Be familiar with the finite-element mesh used by the HEAT solver
• Understand the different simulation modes supported by the HEAT solver
• Be able to describe application areas and example devices that the HEAT solver can be used to simulate
