SEMI-THERM 33 – ‘A History of Commercial CFD’ Short Course

At this year’s SEMI-THERM symposium next week in San Jose, John Parry and I will be presenting a short course on “A History of Commercial CFD from Bernoulli to Spalding and Beyond, with a Focus on Electronics Cooling Simulation”. Ranging from the history of fluid dynamics and heat transfer, the emergence of computing as an engineering resource, key people and companies who pioneered the use of computational fluid dynamics to how electronics cooling has evolved over the last few decades. From the ancient Greece to the present day, we hope to provide an overview and a context for those involved in the thermal design of electronics today.

Can you name the following notable contributors to the field of fluid dynamics and heat transfer? We’ll be discussing them and others besides!







The course is free for those who have registered for the symposium (a fee payable otherwise) and starts at 8am on Monday 13th March. Register now, John and I are very much look forward to seeing you there!
