Design, test, and analyze digital twins of insulated shipping systems used in temperature-controlled logistics.
SmartCAE Thermal Packaging
… let’s you build digital twins of any physical insulated shipping system. Create a virtual prototype of your shipping system, investigate the thermal specifics of each component individually, and the system as a whole. You can expose your prototype to any ambient temperature profile and include factors such as thermal radiation from hot tarmac and solar irradiance. Such extensive tests are very time consuming in practice — in simulation, you can vary these factors with just a few clicks in a matter of seconds. Determine the lifetime of your product within the shipping system and optimize the system’s efficiency.
Quickly build a digital twin of your shipping system.
Rapid prototyping based on computer simulation.
Include any cold pack materials: water and any other PCM.
Include any insulation material: PU, EPS, VIP, ...
Compare packaging solutions of different vendors.
Include solar irradiance and thermal radiation.
Run thousands of simulations in a few minutes.
What are the dimensions of your packaging? How many coolants are used and where is your product placed? Which materials are used for the different components?
Define the geometry of all the components within your shipping system. Set material parameters like heat conductivity, and density.
Are you using coolants in your packaging system? To which temperatures were they preconditioned? What is the start temperature of your product?
Define the initial conditions of the components used in your packaging system.
What ambient temperatures will your packaging face? Is it going to be exposed to direct sunlight? What ISTA profile was run during the climate chamber test?
Apply any kind of temperature profile to your simulation and see how the different profiles affect the lifetime.
