October 6, 2020 at 5:25 pmCheta RathodAnsys EmployeeThermal expansion is explained in Section 3.5 of the MAPDL Material Reference Guide.nnIf a secant CTE is defined (alpx), the thermal strain is CTE*(T-TREF). If an instantaneous CTE is defined (ctex), then it is converted to an equivalent secant CTE. That conversion uses TREF. The thermal strain is then calculated as the equivalent secant CTE*(T-TREF).n
