I would like to know how to set initial temperature of new activated element each time in heat transfer analysis when it is carried out in multiple steps. (If the type of element used is DC3D20). I have tried to use *temperature in step modules when the new element is activated, but gave errors saying temperature cannot be used when temperature is the degree of freedom for elements.
