      Hi Divya,


      Please see this relevant discussion. The embedded ACT is nothing but a bunch of APDL Commands which are available once you unzip the ACT. So you should be able to use it in APDL as well.

      I am from L. D. College of engineering. In our college there is not any department for operating and maintaining Ansys account. Are there any other online sources from where I can download it?

      Divya,


      Are you having trouble accessing the app store? If so, I wont be able to help since it is on the Admin/IT side. You can try emailing appstore@ansys.com and see what's going on with your account. However, to download apps, you must have a recognized ANSYS account.


      Please see this post in the discussion I link to earlier. It has the commands you need to get started. As I state there, you would need to extend the 1d workflow to a 2d or 3d table which includes both time and coordinate variation. See the table definition in that post.

      Yes,I can't login into my ansys app store account and Thanks for providing contact email .I will contact them about my account related problem.


      I seen the post regarding 2d and 3d table workflow method and now able to understand how to apply this manual method for my problem. and i will be able to do moving heat source analysis using this method.


      so,thank for your help sir !
