Paper Abstract

The thermal design requirements of infrared sensors are discussed as they relate to nodal network modeling for thermal performance predictions. The use of the CINDA thermal analyzer program for the solution of the network problems is described, thereby demonstrating the program features which need to be invoked to handle the varying thermophysical properties associated with cryogenic temperatures. An example of steady-state and transient analysis utilizing CINDA is given.
