Modeling Fansink or Heatsink as a compact model rather than a detailed model

Is there a way to represent a fan and heat sink as a compact model where you would not model the detailed fin structure and airflow through the fins, but rather define the thermal resistance as a function of airflow?  I know some CFD software has this type of capability, but could not find anything in the help or examples.


Thank You.
