Deploy Ansys Lumerical HEAT to reliably, and systematically, address your engineer’s needs for heat simulation.
A finite-element heat transfer and Joule heating solver are included in the 3D heat transfer simulation to handle conductive, convective, and radiative effects as well as optically and electrically generated heat.
For steady-state and transient simulation, Lumerical HEAT provides a 2D/3D finite element heat transfer solver.
Self-consistent charge and heat transport simulation is offered by Lumerical HEAT. HEAT can be used in tandem with other Lumerical solutions to conduct multiphysics simulations:
Flexible implementation capable of capturing thermal optical and electro-optical effects.
Automatic mesh refinement catered to Finite Element IDE, based on geometry, materials, doping, refractive index, and optical or heat generation.
With more than 500 adjustable electronic and thermal properties, the material database enables precise modeling of complicated effects, and scriptable material properties, Lumerical HEAT offers a flexible visual database.
Functionality and practical industrial applications
Designers can model interacting optical, electrical, and thermal effects thanks to tools that seamlessly integrate device and system level functionality. A variety of processes that combine device multiphysics and photonic circuit simulation with external design automation and productivity tools are made possible by flexible interoperability between products.
