Hi all I want to calculate deformations in a solid due to thermal expansion. I calculated the temperature field in a CFD solver and now want to use this temperature field in Optistruct in a thermal expansion analysis. I have used the linear interpolation under BCs>Create>Temperatures but when I ran the simulation no displacements were calculated. I discovered that apparently the linear interpolation tool only works for shell elements (while I have a solid with solid elements obviously) so I think this has something to do with my problem. My question is: How would I import a temperature map to my thermal expansion simulation (with a solid) in Optistruct? Is there another way? Looking forward to your ideas Toon
How the linear interpolation works in hypermesh, I am trying to do the interpolation of elliptical distribution of loads through external file. But, all loads were created with zero magnitude.Please help me how to fix the linear interpolation and how to use field loads
