Time and spatial varying temperature field in SOL601

Experimenter

Hi,

 

I've used NX Multiphysics (version 11) to do a thermal analysis on my model to calculate the temperature for every node, for several time steps. I want to implement these results with a time and spatial varying temperature field (thus, the independent variables are time and X, Y and Z coordinates) on a structural analysis. I want to do this using SOL601, which according to https://docs.plm.automation.siemens.com/data_services/resources/nxnastran/11/help/tdoc/en_US/pdf/rel... supports the DTEMP case control command.

 

When I add a temperature load set with this field, the card type is defined as "TEMP" and I can't find out how to change this to "DTEMP", which I suppose it should be.

 

Using this "TEMP" card type, the solver terminates with the following error message:

ERROR : Boundary Condition Temperature is defined using a 4D field. This 
type of definition is not supported for this boundary condition

 

Does anyone know how I can change the card type to "DTEMP" or has any other suggestion?

 

Kind regards,

Evy
