Getting high thermal stress in 2D axisymmetric model

Getting high thermal stress in 2D axisymmetric model

Getting high thermal stress in 2D axisymmetric model

I am trying to learn to use Algor at a new company by recreating some old FEAs for practice.  The problem is that I only have PDFs to work with so I cannot see how the FEAs were developed.  I have managed to successfully recreate some temperature distributions, but I always end up being about 20% high when determining the thermal stresses.  Does anyone have any suggestions to why this would happen?  Thanks.


RE: Getting high thermal stress in 2D axisymmetric model

I realized that my above question may be too vague, so I will clarify some.  I think what I need to know is how to get the linearized stress from Algor.  Thanks again.
