applying temperature restraints to nodes

applying temperature restraints to nodes

applying temperature restraints to nodes

I am trying to apply temperatures to nodes & it seems that I can only apply temperature restraints to geometrical entites. Is there a work around?

Thanks in advance

RE: applying temperature restraints to nodes

*temperature will apply it to node sets

RE: applying temperature restraints to nodes

I agree with brad, *TEMPERATURE is applying to nodes with Abaqus/Standard (or sometimes with an *BOUNDARY if you use elements with a #11 DOF).
Can precise if you are using  Standard or Abaqus/CAE ?

RE: applying temperature restraints to nodes

I am doing all this in Abaqus CAE.

RE: applying temperature restraints to nodes

A work around would possibly be to write a user subroutine if your problem is of applying a variable temperature restraint to an entity. You still need to define some kind of set to apply the user subroutine to, though. If you don't want to apply the fixed temperatures to a full surface or gemoetric entity then you'd have to partition it down to the surface/part you want.


RE: applying temperature restraints to nodes

I think it is also possible to add temperature restraint via including an ascii file (.fil) in your input data (.inp).
