Thermal Conductivity

This section performs a thermal analysis of heat flow thru a mass. Enter in what known variables you have and it will compute the missing element and the Thermal Resistance. The combo box helps the operator choose the “typical” thermal mass elements and the Thermal Conductivity value associated with that material. The operator can edit the Thermal Conductivity section of the INI file to tailor the value set to his or here liking.

RSS – Root Sum Square

This selection allows the operator to Root Sum Square up to 20 inputs to get a geometric mean or RSS. This is typically used to perform error analysis. Input desired number of entries and press “Calculate” to compute or “Clear” to re-enter or “Close” to quit.
