This white paper describes the use of CFD for LED lighting products. Thermal management is by far the most critical aspect of LED product design as both light output and lifetime are strongly affected by LED junction temperature. CFD simulation helps manufacturers optimize the design of heat sinks and other parts of the luminaire to produce low-cost, high performance products.
