I have some limited access to it through my work where we have a rather restrictive single user network licence. So I do not have totally free access to it.

At this point I am treating it as training. The people available who are actually able to use this software with any competence are few and far between. I do not count myself as one of them.

The problem with this type of modelling is that a very in depth knowledge is required of the problem itself before anything meaningful can be created, a bit of a chicken/egg scenario.

Just looked at that website and it appears they have no prices. In other words, it is so expensive that if you are bothered by the price, you probably can't afford it.

Oh, and I can see how you could very easily mislead yourself with a modelling tool like this. It's very much the same in other areas such as EM RF modelling.

.

Exactly, it's in the region of $10000 depending on licence.
The extra modules are ~$4000 each. At least in Sweden, not sure about the US.

Another snapshot of some of Incoherent's work.
Possibly the most interesting features are the "Delta T"s across the TIM.
Due to the exploratory nature of the work, more than one variable are considered.
It is thought,however,that the difference in TIMs is due to the Heat-Flux-rate distribution.
