When temperature-dependent material properties are defined, how does ANSYS determine the material property if the calculated temperature is greater than the maximum temperature defined on the material curve?

In ANSYS Release 11, if the calculated temperature exceeds the highest defined temperature for a temperature dependent material curve, ANSYS uses the maximum defined temperature to determine the material property. It does not extrapolate the curve. This situation should be avoided. The highest temperature defined on the material curve should always be greater than the maximum calculated temperature in the model.
