Time and location dependent boundary condition

    • vherrera


      I have a helical coil tube and I want to impose convection heat transfer coefficient and bulk temperature boundary conditions on the ID surface.  These boundary conditions change along the length of the coil and as a function of time.  Does anyone have suggestions on this? I was told I may need to use APDL but my experience is limitied.  I would appreciate if someone could point me to any examples or guides.  Thanks!

      Can you please explain your query in some more details? It could be possible to define time or Spacially varying loads in Mechanical without using APDL.

      Please check:
