Hello all,

thank you very much for your replies. Indeed it works with the ldread command. I also found out that it works if I use the "Painted shell option". Do you know what is the difference between "Painted shell linear variation" and "linear variation" options ?

Now I also have another issue: in my model I have tubes modelled with shell131. On the outer face of the tubes I would like to account for radiation with ambient, and on the inner face of the tube I have surface to surface radation. But Ansys does not allow to have two different radiation load on the same shell element. Do you know a solution for that issue ?
