How can I find residual stresses using the temperature distribution obtained through APDL

      Hello guys,

      I recently obtained a temperature distribution after conducting a transient thermal analysis on a 2D axisymmetric model in APDL software. Now, I want to find out the residual stresses occurring due to this temperature change. Some resources online suggested that it can be calculated by coupling my transient thermal model with structural model. Can anyone explain how to do the coupling? Also, please suggest if there are any better methods to find out the residual stresses.

      PS. I only used APDL to conduct the whole simulation

      Thank you in advance

      Hey Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, I am using the student version right now. So, i do not have a customer number and hence cant register in the customer portal to access the link you provided in your answer. Is there any other way i can access that resource?
