I'm doing a thermal analysis with thermal couplings between parts, and in the post-processing I'd like to know the thermal flow going through each thermal coupling, so as to easily identify where the power is spread and what thermal coupling are important.
I know that we can visualize the heat flux through elements, but I'd like to have the integrated value that goes through the whole interface of a given thermal coupling.
Do you know if that is possible ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
You need to use REPORTS, is really powerful.
In the SIM environment go to SIMULATION OBJECT TYPE > REPORT and in the form you can select PER REGION, or BETWEEN REGIONS, or HEAT MAPS, etc..
For instance, the option PER REGION allows you to select important THERMAL DATA that will be written in HTML & text (*.csv) format in the simulation run directory after completing the analysis, OK?.
