Improved climate control inside electronic equipment enclosures based on a modelling approach

Electronic control systems are used in all sorts of modern technological devices be it outside or indoors. Uncontrolled local climate inside the enclosures for these systems cause several humidity related failures on the Printed Circuit Board Assemblies (PCBAs) placed inside. Moreover, the designs of the enclosure for these systems are often based on experience gained over the years in the producing companies, rather than systematic, scientific knowledge. The main bottle neck for the industries to brake this trend and develop a more knowledge based design is the lack of dedicated modelling tools, which support the search for optimal designs and humidity control solutions.The aim of this project is to build a modelling approach based on empirical data for electronic enclosure design for improving climatic reliability of electronic devices.
