ME-430 INTRODUCTION TO COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN
A steady state thermal analysis calculates effects of constant thermal loads on a model and is used to determine temperatures, heat flow rates, and the heat fluxes in a part. A steady state analysis is commonly used as a precursor to a transient thermal analysis to determine the initial conditions.
A transient thermal analysis is used to determine the temperature, heat storage and other thermal quantities in a model due to a time varying load. Because the applied load may be time...
