The Heat Sink Predictor (HSP) is a web application that simulates and predicts the performance of heat sink designs. The user specifies the initial conditions, the material properties, and a set of environment variables for fixed geometry options (a future capability will allow user-defined geometries). The HSP performs a thermal analysis as a series of finite element analysis (FEA) calculations to predict a heat map contour plot of the structure and a plot of temperature change with time. The user can download and view the resulting plots. In addition, the user is provided with interactive visualization of the structural heat map with the ability to extract result variables (temperature, heat flux, etc.) at different locations. The FEA calculations are performed using Abaqus by SIMULIA. The HSP was developed by Greenlight Optics, hosted by the Ohio Supercomputer Center, and deployed as an on-demand cloud product by Nimbis Services.
The Startup Package: All new users of the Heat Sink Predictor will begin with the Startup Package. The Startup Package is a low-cost, low-risk, entry-point solution for new users unfamiliar with the use and application of the Heat Sink Predictor. The package includes 5,000 core hours of compute time at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) and eight hours of OSC technical support in the use of the application including use case analysis, problem configuration, and job results analysis and interpretation. The duration of the service is 90 calendar days from the date your order is placed. Job sessions are opened and controlled entirely through your account dashboard in your web browser.
The price includes 5,000 core hours of compute time and eight hours of technical support by email and phone. The service begins when the order is placed and ends after 90 calendar days.
You must first register for access to the products listed in the Blue Collar Computing store. If you have not already registered, you will see a "Register" button instead of "Buy". After you register, the "Register" button will be replaced with "Buy". Clicking on the “Buy” button will take you through checkout. At checkout, payment will be made against the payment method, credit card or purchase order, that you have specified in your account profile. When you complete checkout, you will be redirected to your dashboard which will contain a ready session of the product.
