Fast Computing Model for Thermal Field of Auto Lamp
Thermal field analysis for automotive lamps is a complicated thermodynamics problem. According to the features of structure and lighting process of automotive lamps, a simple and convenient model is put forward here for analyzing their thermal field. Under certain assumptions, it simplifies the complicated geometrical structure to the relative simple cavities and only considers the influence of thermal conduction and thermal radiation as main forms of heat transfer for thermal field of the lamps. The consistency of numerical analysis and actual test demonstrates that this modeling method calculates thermal field of the lamps quickly and perfectly, and indicates its practical signification.
