Thermal Modeling for Temperature Controlled Packaging Systems
Finding the correct simulation parameters and making the appropriate geometric approximations present the biggest challenges in obtaining simulation results that accurately replicate test results. Cryopak has developed a standard set of processes, options and parameters leading to acceptable simulation results for existing and new thermal package designs.
Cryopak’s cold chain packaging group offers the following thermal modeling and simulation services:
Creation of Thermal Packaging System CAD Model
An assembly CAD model of a thermal packaging system is created component-by-component from customer-supplied specifications. This model can then be used for drafting, visualization, editing, or simulation purposes.
Thermal Simulation of Modeled Temperature-Controlled Packaging Systems
The thermal performance of a packaging system model is simulated with customer-supplied constraints. Thermal connections and initial conditions are defined according to specifications. The temperature response of the simulated payload is exported for further analysis. Temperature response from other points in the system can also be exported.
Thermal Simulation with Custom Profile
The thermal performance of a packaging system is tested against a custom profile or profiles. The temperature response of the payload is exported for further analysis. This can be particularly useful in the investigation of the performance of a packaging system under exceptional conditions.
Modification of Payload
For a packaging system, additional simulation runs can be made with different payload types and sizes.
Thermal Simulation is also offered as an integrated part of the full design, qualification and production service of cold chain packaging from Cryopak.

The webinar focuses on finite element analysis (FEA), a computational technique used in the simulation of complex physical phenomena such as heat transfer. It involves the division of a digital model into small domains in which the relevant physical equations can be calculated.
