Description
Creates an initial temperature constraint for a thermo-mechanical analysis.
Use
- Click on or choose Model → Thermal Constraints → Constraint initial temperature from the top menu.
- Enter an initial temperature value for the analysis.
Limitations
The constraint applies the initial temperature to all nodes in the FEA model
Notes
- The constraint uses the **INITIAL CONDITIONS card in CalculiX. The initial temperature constraint is explained at http://web.mit.edu/calculix_v2.7/CalculiX/ccx_2.7/doc/ccx/node215.html
