I'm trying to test the use of Param HEATSTAT to chain a thermal and structural analysis in sol101 but I get a fatal message 3001 "THE INPUT DATA BLOCK NAMED UG AT POSITION 5 DOES NOT EXIST".
The analysis seems to start ok with message 9199 "LINEAR HEAT TRANSFER ANALYSIS INITIATED" and 9157 "LINEAR STATIC ANALYSIS WILL BE PERFORMED WITH TEMPERATURES COMPUTED ABOVE" but there is a message 9142 "THE SOLUTION FOR THE RESIDUAL STRUCTURE AND THE APPLIED LOADS FOR THE CURRENT SUBCASE ARE ZERO".
Does anybody has a small example of an input deck with param HEATSTAT ?
(my input is attached)
Thank you in advance for any help
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thank you very much, it works.
My mistake was on the definition of temp loads instead of SPC for the thermal subcase.
I never remenver to look in the nastran examples files.
