Gravity + Thermal load OptiStruct analysis

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am performing a thermal analysis with ambient temp at 25 and temp loading at -40 along with Gravity loading in Z direction.

I have been able to run Gravity loading with Grav  card and individual load case. And thermal loading with TEMPD in for -40 and 25 and creating loadcase with TEMP being ambient temp and TEMP_LOAD being loading temp of -40. 

I would like to see combined effect of gravity and temp as loads !!1

Any suggestion would be helpful.   

Note: This is a full vehicle and SPC is PARAM, AUTOSPC.

Hi,
Can you explain me how did you do the thermal loading?
I am trying to do the same but i am not finding any tutorial.
Thank you.
