Good morning,


I was wondering if SW Simulation is capable of evaluating the thermal deformation of two dissimilar materials that are mated and subjected to a thermal load.


I have established:


contact sets with friction

thermal loading on all exposed faces

meshed geometry

main constraint of aluminum block


Before I begin trusting any results, I am wondering how capable Simulation is for this type of study.
