Calculators

Use the heat pipe performance calculator to:

  • Find the effective thermal conductivity of heat pipes as an input to CFD modeling software.
  • Understand how angle affects the maximum power handling capacity (Qmax) of various heat pipe sizes.
  • Select possible heat pipe alternatives based on their delta-T at various input powers.

Use the thermal spreading delta-T calculator to:

  • Understand if a vapor chamber base should be considered over an aluminum or copper base.
  • Model different base thicknesses to optimize spreading performance.

Use the heat sink size calculator to:

  • Estimate heat sink volume during the early stages of heat sink design.
  • Compare these estimates to desired heat sink dimensions.
