• Is there a way to apply heat loads programmatically?

    Let's say I have n stacked cubes and I want to apply a power load to each of them as a function of their relative position. If n is large this can be a huge pain to do through the GUI. Is there a way to apply loads...

  • Is it possible to analyze twisting two wires?

    We ran a model in which two wires were fixed on one side and torque was applied to the other. However, the shape of the wire is excessively deformed, and the result is not correct.
