Solaria was designed by thermal analysts, for thermal analysts.
Solaria Process
First you build the geometry of your problem using two and three dimension elements. These elements represent the thermal behavior of the material.
Then define the thermal properties or select them from the supplied database. Work in the units you want.
Define boundary conditions like convection and radiation from surfaces of the geometry and heat loads.
Fix the temperature of places in the model that are the heat sinks, ie: the ambient air, space temperature, the liquid coolant inlet.
Hit the Run button to solve for steady state or time dependent temperatures.
Create a color temperature plot of the steady state temperatures or at a point in time of the transient run. Plot temperatures versus time with the built-in plotter or animate the transient results.  See where the heat is going, understand where the problems really are so you know where to concentrate your efforts.
Change that aluminum bracket to copper or to that new ceramic to get its effect. Change some geometry to optimize the design. Running trade-off studies is easy, resulting in a better, optimized design. See if going to that more expensive material is really justified.
Automatically create a summary of your model and results for that report.
