      How can I setup a time-dependent value for thermal contact conductance (TCC)?

      Yes, a tabular load can be used for TCC(real constant 14) with TIME as the primary variable in the table (See *DIM command). The same method can be used in Workbench using the Commands Object for the specific contact using the contact id, cid. ! define the table to hold the time-dependent TCC *DIM,tdtcc,table,5,,,TIME ! enter the time values into column zero tdtcc(1,0) = 0, 10, 15, 25, 30 ! enter the TCC values into column one tdtcc(1,1) = 100, 90, 70, 40, 50 ! set the TCC real constant to the tabular values rmodif,cid,14,%tdtcc% ! the TCC will be linearly interpolated as needed
