Mapping thermal load to a subset of the geometry in a mechanical calculation

    • FluxLimited

      Let's say I want to run a steady state thermal calculation followed by a static structural calculation to determine the thermal stresses. I can link the two analyses in Workbench and run them successfully. But let's say I wanted to run the mechanical calculation on a geometric subset of the original thermal problem's geometry. How would I accomplish this?

      You can use Submodelling for modeling the geometric subset of the original geometry by linking the Solution Cell of the entire geometric Model to the Setup Cell of the Geometric Submodel. Make sure to include all the necessary boundary conditions in the Submodel. Then you can link the Solution obtained in the Submodel to the Static Structural Analysis, depending on what you want to import in the Static Structural Analysis.
