Temperature Predictions Using Thermal Data-Base and Design Sensitivity Analysis 1999-01-0699
Design Sensitivity Analysis (DSA) is applied to a thermal data base for automotive lamps. The DSA predicts temperatures on lamps with dimensions and light sources different from those in the data base. Predicted temperatures closely agree with the measured temperatures. These predictions are done early in the design phase and allow use of a Cardinal thermal data base than a Conventional one. The DSA can also be used in designing lamps for thermal safety.
