    Temperature Effects on Simulation Run

    Chris DiSalvatore

      Can a simulation run be done to show deflection of a material at high temperature directly in the simulation program, or does a flow simulation run need to be done first and transitioned over?

          Run a thermal model in Simulation, using conduction, uniform bulk convection, radiation, generation....

          and THEN you import that temperature solution T(x,y,z,t) into a subsequent stress or other study.


          If you apply temperatures on a surface in a static stress study,   the temperatures will influence the stress/strain results, BUT ONLY on that surface.  ie thermal diffusion does not take place in that static stress study.
