Introduction

This paper addresses methods that can help to achieve the best-in-class thermal management for the lighting industry. We discuss selecting and measuring the thermal characteristics of LEDs, choosing the most suitable LED, and conducting accelerated aging tests. We also cover thermal simulation of complex-shaped lighting systems such as headlights and tail lights, and using concurrent computational fluid dynamics (CFD) technology to design higher quality products and to develop automotive lighting systems more quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively.
