Introduction to Thermal Modeling Using SINDA/G® SINDA/G (Systems Improved Numerical Differencing Analyzer /Gaski) was designed to be a general purpose thermal analyzer. SINDA/G is more than a program, it's a software system that can be customized to meet most needs in thermal modeling. It is capable of solving lumped parameter representations of physical problems governed by diffusion-type equations. The thermal system to be modeled is divided into thermal masses (thermal capacitance's) and conductors. This forms a conductor-capacitor or G-C network that is solved by SINDA/G. The full structure of SINDA/G will be explained through the use of an example problem in the next section of this tutorial. 48

JK Mold Design JK Mold Design is a leading provider of high-end, complex mold designs for plastic injection-molded parts and aluminum and zinc die casting. Until the late 1990s, the contract design firm used the CADKEY® 2D design package to create engineering drawings for mold designs that customers use to manufacture products and components. According to John Kreutzberger, owner of JK Mold Design, 2D tools were adequate until he began receiving a variety of 3D design data. He discovered he was spending an inordinate amount of time rebuilding models in 2D, and started landing projects requiring increasingly complex mold designs. 0

Outdoor Technologies Inc. Outdoor Technologies Inc. (OTI) manufactures vinyl fencing, decking, and railing products. The company originally used AutoCAD® 2D design tools, but believed it could increase productivity and improve product visualization for its customers by moving to a 3D CAD system. OTI initially chose the Autodesk Inventor® 3D CAD package in 2003. Because the company had used Autodesk® software, it believed upgrading to Inventor represented the most economical option due to discounted pricing, according to Stan Hathorn, engineering/technical manager. 0
