Tutorial No. 16 - Transient temperature distribution and thermal stress
How to calculate a transient temperature distribution and the resultant thermal stress.
In this Ansys Tutorial brought to you by CADFEM we shall be looking at how to use Ansys Workbench to calculate both a transient temperature distribution and the resultant thermal stress. The example we shall be using is a finned pipe as found in heat exchangers.
Temperature distribution and thermal stress using Ansys Workbench
- Transient (temporal) temperature profile
- Thermal stress due to temperature gradient and material mix
