Basically there are two options to handle this, eihter using the Moving Heat Source extension or APDL commands. In both cases a gaussian heat source is given. However i am interested in modelling a uniform heat source. Is there a way to get a a uniform circular intensity distribution adapting the extension or using APDL?nAnother question i have is about a possibility of creating a pulsed heat source. I am thinking about adding a factor which is either one or zero depending on time and to multiply it with the power intensity. What might be a good practice to achive thie?nThanks in advance for any information or resources.n
