Importing temperatures from Ansys
« on: September 28, 2017, 04:24:12 AM »
Is it possible to import temperatures from Ansys? The temperatures are applied as nodal body force loads (APDL: BF) in a static analysis in Ansys.

For ANSYS thermal loads are not supported.

See:
https://hypersizer.com/help_7.3/#FE-Results-Import/results-thermal_loads.php%3FTocPath%3DFeatures%7CFEM%2520Interface%7CFEA%2520Loads%7C_____6

For other solvers, HyperSizer supports element forces.

You could assign reference temperatures to the load sets in HyperSizer. This will define the temperature at which the material properties are extracted for margin assessment.

I hope this is helpful.
