    Thermal stress analysis

      Hi all,

      i am using a casted model. This is heated and cooled in a furnace. I am attaching the heating and cooling details for the same as well SWX part is available for ready reference. How do I input these thermal loads into the part and carry out the analysis? What are the exact method to set up the problem. I want to calculate the thermal stresses getting developed in the model.

      I have an idea that we need to include convection as well as radiation effects but i have no clue what values to feed in.

      Please let me know your suggetions on setting up the problem. Please help as I am struck at this stage...
