# Steady State Initial Temperature

All,
I am trying to complete a simple steady state thermal analysis. However, I would like to use an initial temperature for theassembly.  When I pick Temperature from the Load/Restraintsection, the only option available is just Temperature.  So, Iselect all my components and set them to a temperature. However, the results are all at that temperature with nothermal gradiants across the part.  If I remove thetemperature load/restraint, I get the gradiant, but the overallsteady state temp can not be correct.

How can I define a steady state initial temperature for myassembly?

Thank you,
Kevin
