Steady State Thermal – Conflicting results

    • hani.sadek_i


      I am continuing the research on an old project that was done in 2018.

      The person who was working on that project was using Ansys 2016, while currently, I am using Ansys 2021.

      When I opened the file the first time, it had saved results. when I reran the simulation it showed totally different ones.

      are there any settings that I need to change to get similar results to the ones we got in the 2016 model earlier?

      The images below show the difference between old and new results:

      If you are receiving different load from maxwell naturally the results would be different in steady state thermal. Could you compare the Maxwell model setup (mesh/analysis settings) in both versions and see if you find any difference. There might be changes done to the automatic mesh generation algorithm in the newer version resulting in a different mesh and hence changed results.
      Regards Ishan.
