I have several parts in an assembly that are a press fit. I now want to impose a thermal load to the shrunk fit assembly and determine what the forces are on the interfering parts due to both the shrink fit and the thermal load. I am able to create the Contact Sets in the assembly and run the Simulation and determine the forces due to the shrink fits alone. However when I try to run the thermal analysis alone I get an error that says that there are interferences and do I want to run interference detection. The only Contact Set I can create in the Thermal analysis is a Thermal Resistance.
Is it possible to include a thermal simulation in a static shrink fit simulation?
