In this article, we will show you how to define a thermal condition to a body or bodies that are imported in ANSYS® Mechanical. Defining Thermal Condition is a very important thing that if you have a par tor body that works in much higher temperature degrees, you need to define it in ANSYS® Mechanical. And also this is a very important boundary condition in finite element method in ANSYS®.

How To Define Thermal Condition In ANSYS® Mechanical?
To assign a thermal condition to a part in ANSYS® Mechanical, right-click on the analysis system as shown by the green arrow above(Static Structural in this example), hover your mouse on the Insert tab as shown in the red box, then click on Thermal Condition as shown by the red arrow.
Select the geometry that you will define your thermal condition as shown by the green arrow above. You can choose only bodies in this boundary condition. After selecting the body, click on the Apply button in the Geometry section of Thermal Condition in ANSYS® Mechanical, as shown by the red arrow above.
After selecting the geometry, define your temperature value as shown in the red box above in ANSYS® Mechanical.
The body temperature value is defined in ANSYS® Mechanical. The body temperature value is defined as shown in the red box above in ANSYS® Mechanical. It is very simple like that.
