Abstract:Heat is one of those system aspects that is influenced by multiple engineering disciplines. Because it is difficult to communicate design decisions between disciplines, as discussed briefly in Chapter 1, it is difficult to find the optimal design with respect to these system aspects. One way in which the design process can be improved is to use model-based design. Using models, it becomes possible for the disciplines to communicate insights and make trade-offs in an early stage of development, before design changes become prohibitively expensive.
In this chapter, an example of a heat model is shown that can be used for these purposes. First, the relevance of heat in a printer is explained by linking heat to the fundamental goal of a printer: making high-quality prints. This gives insight in the questions to be answered by modeling. Then some modeling techniques for heat are discussed, and a case is studied in which a heat model is constructed.
