Body Temperature That Changes With Time In ANSYS Mechanical(Illustrated Expression
Body temperature is very important boundry condition in finite element analysis(FEA). Defining of body temperature correct way according to the engineering or physical problem is very important to obtain correct results. In this article of Mechanical Base we will show you how to define body temperatures in ANSYS Mechanical that changes with time. You can define a body temperature value to a body that changes with time which means it has different temperature values in changing time.

How To Define Body Temperature That Changes With Time In ANSYS Mechanical?
To define body temperature value to body that changes with time in ANSYS Mechanical, right click on analysis system as shown by green arrow above(Static Structural in this example) then hover over your mouse Insert tab as shown in red box above. Click on Thermal Condition from the menu that opened as shown by red arrow
Select the geometry that you will define your thermal condition that changes with time as shown by green arrow above. You can choose only bodies in this time dependent boundry condition. After selecting the body, click on Apply button in Geometry section of Thermal Condition in ANSYS Mechanical, as shown by red arrow above.
To define temperature value that changes with time in ANSYS Mechanical, click on little pop-up menu opener as shown by red arrow above then click on Tabular method from this pop-up menu.
You can add time values to your tabular data as shown by red arrow. For example enter a time value then press Enter from keyboard. You can enter the temperature value next to this value in Tabular Data as in red box.
As you can see above graph, the temperature value that changes with time is assigned. This situation for the body in analysis will be considered in solution process.
This is very easy like that to define temperature values that change with time to bodies in ANSYS Mechanical.
