Time Dependent Thermal Loading

I am doing a transient thermal analysis in COSMOSworks educationedition, and I am wondering if anyone knows how to apply atemperature load and then remove it. For example, I would like toapply a 40 degree temperature on a surface for 1 second and thenremove it while the rest of the body redistributes the temperaturethrough the volume for another 10 seconds.

I know you can do a time dependent force load like this by applyinga load for a certain amount of time and then setting it to 0 forthe rest of the simulation, but this would not quite be the samething for a temperature load.
