In the ANSYS fatigue module, is it possible to specify S-N curves for different temperatures?

In ANSYS Release 10.0, it is not possible adjust the S-N curve for temperature. The most common approaches taken by users are to manually pre-adjust one S-N curve using the highest temperature in the model or use multiple S-N curves based on different temperatures. The first approach is most typically used. It is the simplest method and it is always conservative. The second method can be applied if this method is overly conservative.
