Hi Stuart. The units of thermal resistance are: degrees Celsius/watt.

Thank you.

Thanks Ed, interesting post. 

What are the units of your measure of thermal resistance?

Best,

Stuart.

I agree! Very interesting article on how by integrating functions with existing parts, improved performance with a smaller footprint is possible: I thought it was fascinating how the article explains its example of products having fan blades that traditionally serve as a cooler are manufactured from magnetic materials that turn it into a rotor part of the motor as well. It seem like a natural combination of functions but it took someone visualizing how to integrate two functions using parts that have not served in that capacity in previous designs.

More often than not, with the purchase of a sports car comes the sacrifice of any sort of utility. In other words, you can forget about a large trunk, extra seats for the kids, and more importantly driving in snowy (or inclement) weather. But what if there was a vehicle that offered the best of both worlds; great handling and practicality?
As additive manufacturing (including 3D printing) becomes increasingly popular among businesses as a quick and easy solution to creating and evaluating prototypes and end-use products, the debate about whether to outsource production or to purchase equipment for in-house use is at the forefront of industry discussions.
With increasing terrorist threats overseas, organizations are thinking about how best to defend themselves here and abroad. Engineering can play a role, especially when it comes to putting a barrier between yourself and the bad guys.
Time to market is everything, but at the same time, you cant sacrifice quality for speed. Thats where additive manufacturing comes into play.
In the last few years, use of CFD in building design has increased manifolds. Computational fluid dynamics is effective in analyzing the flow and thermal properties of air within spaces. It can be used in buildings to find the best measures for comfortable temperature at low energy use.
