No matter what you're designing, it is crucial to consider the environment in which it will operate.

You must be able to answer, what are the effects of a specific kind of environment? Have the effects of solar loading, humidity, wind, or other phenomena been properly considered?

Because the world does not operate in steady-state, transient simulation of your design's environment is necessary for an accurate thermal analysis. Our expert engineering team can assist you in predicting the effects of any climate. 

Natural Effects

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. 

Material Properties

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.

Unprecedented Speed, Incredible Accuracy

Our transient thermal solver enables our engineers to deliver actionable results to you in days. Even with our quick turn-around, accuracy is never compromised.
