From the documentation it seems:
1) I can enter material properties for phase change
2) I can inspect the phase change as a result of a NX thermal/flow solution
Can NX nastran thermal model phase change? I can specify the material property in the material library. But I am not sure if NX nastran thermal is actually using those properties for the calcution.
Solved! Go to Solution.
According to the NXN9 QRG the MAT4 card does include phase change temperature and latent heat of fusion. You would need to run SOL159 for time-dependency, and all the usual considerations for running non-linear would apply.
