No matter what you're designing, it is crucial to consider the environment in which it will operate.
Using our thermal analysis software, TAIThermTM, our engineers can model transient solar loads, wind speed, air temperature, and other environmental factors to ensure optimal operation of your design. For outdoor environments, you only need to know the location, date, time, and temperature information in order to model a natural environment’s effect on your product. TAITherm will predict the moving solar position, solar loading, and heat transfer for the selected environment and your design. We can easily run multiple environmental scenarios for long transient durations in order to develop a complete understanding of the typical use cases.
In addition to modeling the environment, our engineers can simulate your chosen materials and see how they will perform in the outlined scenario. Transparent materials, such as glass, are gaining popularity in a variety of industries. Not only is glass more prevalent, but it is being used in more complex shapes than ever before. These trends could create a perfect storm for unintended effects (remember the Death Ray hotel?). A proper environmental analysis will ensure that your design can not only withstand its environment but have no unintended consequences.
The Human Element
Our engineers can model the thermal comfort of your users. Using our Human Thermal Extension, we can provide a detailed analysis of thermal comfort and safety. Using physiological size, height, weight, clothing ensembles, and activity levels, we will simulate how someone will feel while sitting in the cabin of a vehicle, wearing a VR headset, or while wearing particular clothing layers—in any environment.
