Shrink Fit with Temperature Dependence

Question asked by Gerald Fly on Sep 26, 2013

Hi,

 

I am trying to analyze the shrink fit of a bearing at room temperature and then analyze the stresses at operating temperature.  I come from the ABAQUS world where I would do this in two analysis steps and just change the part temperatures from one step to the other but I don't see how to accomplish this in Solidworks.  I've used Solidworks for design but not for analysis.  Can someone please help me with this?
