Description

ESATAN-TMS provides an advanced thermal modelling environment for the thermal analysis of spacecrafts and launch vehicles. The suite is continually being enhanced to meet current and future requirements of space projects, and to support the specific needs of thermal engineers.

Post-processing of the thermal and radiative results is a significant part of the overall thermal modelling process. Clear presentation of data not only helps the understanding of model and result data, but also helps towards model validation, reducing errors and rework. The ability to visualise the thermal connectivity of the model – or specific parts of the model – is a powerful mechanism to understand its thermal behaviour, particularly looking at heat flows. A key driver is to provide the data to the thermal engineer when they want it and in the form they need it.

This presentation focuses on how ESATAN-TMS helps the thermal engineer work effectively, viewing model data, iteratively updating the model definition and regenerating reports and charts for immediate visualisation of results.
