how to put periodic heat flux in thermal transient

      I am trying to simulate for the thermal response (temperature counter) of simple cavity plate of the injection mold because it is very important to temperature range should be within tolerance.


      I made a simple cavity and make a cylindrical hole along the length to represent the electric cartridge heating. I made a steady state analysis with constant heat flux input. But now I want to make a thermal transient analysis with periodic heat flux input.



      I have the problem in inputting periodic heat flux load as an XML file. I got the error "Either the specified location is incorrect or the source at that location contains no data".


      error


       


      I want to put load as below chart



      I also new to this software. Waiting for help. thank you!

      Hello Suraj


      Attached is a example Transient Thermal model that has a 10 second on/off square wave of heat flux.



      Below is the resultant Temperature response.



      ANSYS 18.2 archive is attached.

      Hi Suraj,


      I moved your question to a new topic, since this topic is marked as solved.


      Some people will not spend time reading solved topics so you might not get all the help you could.


      Regards,


      Peter
