hello i have a SS tube (10000mm dia 25.4mm thick 1 250mm high)

i would like to see shrinkage if temp drops from 20 to -70 celc.

is it possible with SW sim to see the final result?

would it be possible to see the time it would take to reach -70 is i coulld tel that that that and that surface are in contact with dry ice?

thanks

yep,

simple > static analysis with a temperature difference

medium > nonlinear, changing temperature boundary conditions

harder > time dependent thermal import into a nonlinear analysis

you'll need sim prem for this

you'll need the second analysis if you need to find out how long it takes to get down to that temperature.
