Hello everyone, I am new here and an "advanced beginner" using Ansys. I want to do a transient thermal - electric Analysis to simulate the electrical contact and its heating of two different materials. For that I made a model with two bodies and the following settings made for the contact area:May 2, 2022 at 8:52 pmrdw60epicSubscriberLisa, Did you ever get an answer to this question from ANSYS? I am interested in the same thing for my application.
May 3, 2022 at 11:38 amNaboru_92SubscriberNo, I didn't get an answer yet. I only had a look at the code generated by Ansys and saw how the key options of the element were set. Depending on the key options you can see in the description which parameter you can set. So I assumed that these values for thermal and electrical conductivity are those in the description, although the unit is not correct in Ansys workbench.

Hi, not clear what the question is. The one thing I want to note is that the thermal and electric conductivity may not go in exactly as you input in the mecahnical GUI. Often these are converted to consistent units. This is described and units for various quantities are shown in "understanding solving units" at https://ansyshelp.ansys.com/account/secured?returnurl=/Views/Secured/corp/v222/en/wb_sim/ds_solving_units.html?q=solver%20unit%20systemViewing 3 reply threads
