Looking for the Design Limits: First Steps to Establish a New Methodology 2001-01-2407
This paper presents a modest approach of a new type of methodology to design thermal subsystems based on the knowledge of the limits of the proposed designs and its capabilities to adopt changes since the early phases of the projects. The methodology is based on establishing two major contents. Firstly a thermal performance database using Monte Carlo and statistical results exploitation similar to the stochastic analysis discipline and secondly a thermal uncertainties database using pure stochastic analysis. As consequence, an attempt to redefine and compare the objectives of each of the present phase’s definition is provided.
