      Thanks, Peter!


      It really helped me.


      Now next I want to put heat flux on or off according to programmed control.


      I want my model maximum temperature should not exceed 180 deg and also not fall below 175 deg.


      how to put logical heat flux load like below


      0180 deg=1500 Watt.


      Temp>180 deg=0 Watt.


       


      Thank you!

      This new discussion was moved from the tail end of a solved discussion.


      Suraj, I don't know how to do this, but will be interested to find out.


      Regards,

       Hi Suraj9735


      There is a 'combination' element in Mechanical APDL that can act as a thermostat.  See the two part blog entry on this at PADT - the link to part 1 is:
