What type of thermal-stress analysis can be done with remote solve in WB 10.0?
The 10.0 Simulation help indicates that "implicit" thermal-stress is
not supported for remote solve. If you are doing what is considered
an "explicit" thermal-stress analysis that should not cause the remote solve to fail.
· Thermal Stress - There are two methods for defining a coupled thermal stress solution.
· Implicit: Here the program determines the solution is coupled thermal-stress by the presence of thermal loads and structural results
under the same environment. This method is supported for legacy databases but is not the recommended method.
· Explicit: Here you insert a Thermal Condition load into your structural environment. The thermal condition may either be a uniform or
non-uniform temperature. This is the recommended method as it clearly shows the coupled phenomenon.
