The next in the webinar series will cover sequential and fully coupled thermal-stress analyses using Abaqus.
The three modes of heat transfer, conduction, convection and radiation will be covered, along with how these are defined in CAE.
Frequently a thermal analysis is coupled to a stress analysis in order to determine the impact of thermal loading on the structural behaviour. If the structural behaviour will not influence the thermal behaviour, a sequential analysis approach can be adopted, but if the thermal behaviour is coupled to the structural behaviour, a fully coupled thermal/stress analysis is required. This webinar will cover how both forms of analyses are performed.
