Having trouble with 3D transient heating of a thin film

    • Esteban Espinoza

      Hello all,

      I am attempting to simulate the heating of an aluminum thin film under an ion beam.  So far I have tried applying internal heat generation (and heat flow) to a 3D model of a thin film.  My goal is to recreate data shown in a certain paper.  Based on results I have gotten so far, it seems like the amount of heat going into the target is not nearly as much as it should be, but I am using the same parameters provided in the previously mentioned paper.  The link below provides the paper I am referencing, as well as my ANSYS files.

      Thank you in advance,

      Esteban Espinoza
