Lecture - Air Cooling By Diabatix
Cooling by air is very relevant in applications such as microprocessors, electronics or batteries. Traditionally, air-cooled heat sinks consist of multiple parallel fins. These designs are very simple, but do not harness the full cooling potential. In this lecture Joris presents the solution of Diabatix, designed by our AI system. It contains three features which make it significantly more efficient than standard cooling solutions.

Engines are a preponderant heat source in both mobile applications and manufacturing machines. In this lecture, Joris delves into the cooling of engines. The first engine he studies is the combustion engine of a bomber plane manufactured just before WW II. The second engine is an electric motor, which was used in a manufacturing line. Surprisingly, engines are still cooled the same way today. How do current designs look like? Find it out on our website
