I'm getting a better idea of your situation now.
Do I understand correctly that your original intent would be to import a snapshot of the temperature distribution in your near-rigid tool in order to do a design study of the cooling channels in the tool using ICFD in LS-DYNA? In other words, the ICFD analysis would not involve any mechanical response of the tool (no stresses or deformation). You just want to study cooling trends using ICFD. Is that right?
