Objective

The success of many structural designs requires a thorough understanding of both the thermal and mechanical response of the design. Temperature-dependent material properties, thermally-induced deformation, and temperature variations all may be important design considerations.  In this seminar you will learn how to use the coupled thermal-stress analysis capabilities available in both Abaqus/Standard and Abaqus/Explicit.

Topics that will be covered include:

  • Sequentially coupled thermal-stress analysis
  • Fully-coupled thermal-stress analysis
  • Adiabatic analysis
  • Element selection for thermal-stress analysis
Who Should Attend

This course is recommended for engineers with experience using Abaqus. An understanding of pure heat transfer analysis is also helpful.< /p>

If you do not have experience performing heat transfer analyses with Abaqus, consider reviewing the relevant sections of the Abaqus manual before attending this class, such as "Uncoupled heat transfer analysis," section 6.5.2 of the 6.11 Abaqus Analysis User's Manual and "Conductive, convective, and radiative heat transfer in an exhaust manifold," Section 5.1.5 of the 6.11 Abaqus Example Problems Manual.
