Heavy Duty: The Unique Thermodynamics of Heavy Vehicles
This class of vehicle presents some unique thermal management issues, distinguishing them from typical automobiles and presenting some distinct challenges when it comes to heat transfer modeling.
Armed with a complete temperature distribution and heat rates for radiation, conduction, and convection, your team can maximize engineering design tradeoffs in the early stages of development and then optimize and validate the final product designs. TAITherm's highly efficient Graphical User Interface and numerically optimized solver provide your team with comprehensive heat transfer solutions and a fast ROI. Join the many leading simulation teams who use TAITherm to achieve faster time-to-market and reduced testing costs.
Written entirely in modular C++, TAITherm maintains speed and file compatibility across platforms. A state-of-the-art voxel-based ray tracer is used to compute radiation view factors and solar projected areas. This ray tracer provides the fastest radiation exchange solver on the market. Compiled user routines and easily edited scripts allow engineers to include functions like feedback control systems. For expert programmers, a cross-platform C++ API is also available.
ThermoAnalytics is a team of industry-leading engineers and scientists with many advanced degrees and decades of experience in the fields of CAE software development, computational heat transfer, infrared signature prediction, thermal-fluid systems design and modeling, and field/lab measurements.
"The TAITherm software package has become a popular thermal-management CAE tool for solving heat-transfer problems and producing comprehensive solutions in many industries.

Key Features & Benefits
TAITherm heat transfer software lets you develop solutions to comprehensive heat transfer design problems. TAITherm is a professional thermal modeling program that predicts the full heat transfer solution for your product or system. From the temperature or heat rate results, you can modify your system or component design and test the system's response to the change. For example, active and passive cooling techniques can be tested for cost-benefit analysis. With TAITherm, you are able to analyze complex, coupled heat transfer problems by solving for conduction, radiation, and convection under both steady-state and transient conditions.
TAITherm is the industry benchmark for speed, accuracy, and flexibility. Faster setup with parametric parts and rapid heat transfer analysis save you time and money. This translates into better customer focus and quicker time to market. Import your surface geometry and change designs with ease. Manipulate the geometry within TAITherm to improve your thermal management design. Sophisticated integration with CFD allows the analyst to employ 3-dimensional convection from all major CFD applications, while leveraging TAITherm's power for system-level transient analysis.
TAITherm answers key thermal design questions from early concept studies to validation with benchmark speed, resolution and accuracy. The intuitive Graphical User Interface keeps your heat transfer simulation on target - no wasted time with clumsy data files. As the simulation is computed, the analyst can view detailed thermal results during the solution process, and then at the end of solution in the post processor. Rather than just looking at plots or static thermal images, we offer a free viewer called ViewTherm for full 3D animation over time of your heat transfer simulation. Your management can review the results and share design improvements with other teams. With the ability to use scripts for “batch” solutions, you can queue up a batch of models for analysis overnight or over the weekend and thus make the most of your human resources by focusing on setup and analysis during business hours.
