All, I have two plates of material A and material B.  Plate 1is larger (longer and wider) than plate 2.  Plate 2 ispositioned on top of plate 1 such that only a portion of plate 1 isvisible.  I need to apply a load/restraint (heat fluxincident) to the exposed area of plate 1.  Currently when Iselect that area, the whole face is selected which is not a truemodel of the real world.  The flux incident will only hit theexposed faces and the covered area will be heated by conduction. I have not attached the model, but I have attached a ppt fileillustrating what I am trying to do.

thank you,
Kevin
