im trying to do thermal simulation by using simple solver SOL 101 by introducing temperature variable table data. At temperature set, there is default temperature column. i want to call/ link it with temperature variation table that has been created earlier. But the error comes : " the specific expression variable does not exist. exoression 'temperaturevariation_HCT' not found. Refer attached figure.
Is there any expression just to call back/link the data in temperature set interphase. Appreciate any feedbacks on this issue.
You are trying to specify a temperature variation for the default temperature value. The default temperature entry is a single real value that gets exported to the NXNastran TEMPD card. This specifies the temperature value to be used for any node that does not have a specific temperature load applied.
You need to create a temperature load set, then create a temperature load inside of that load set. The temperature load can reference a spatially varying temperature field because it ultimately generates a unique TEMP card for each node in the input deck.
