[SI-LIST] PCB solder current carrying capacity

Hi,



I want to determine current carrying capacity of solder pads - effect of solder 
material/ land-pad size for very high current applications (>5A-10A per solder 
pad)



I can use IPC spec to design appropriate metal layer trace widths/thickness for 
a required temp rise.

However, I am looking at options to estimate/calculate/simulate current 
carrying capacity for solder pads.
