Duration: 45 Minutes
Industrial product design in automotive lighting contributes to vehicle styling and OEM brand recognition. To meet thermal performance requirements for light output and reliable product lifetime alongside industrial design, appropriate physical simulation during development presents challenges.
This webinar will focus on the radiation physics and modeling as part of web seminar series on automotive lighting thermal design. Headlights & taillights feature large number of reflective surfaces, refractive bodies, and semitransparent materials. To simulate thermal loads adequately, the optical behavior of these elements within the system should be modeled accurately and also environmental and solar radiation influences understood.
What you will learn:
- The physics of radiation
- What the typical radiation problems are in Automotive Lighting
- Spectrum, absorption, emission, reflection, refraction
- Radiation analytical model types for CFD thermal simulation
