Benefits and Description

In the Simulation interface, you can use a new object type to model a thermal gap, a thermal gap filler pad, thermal grease, thermal paste, or any very thin region with conductivity different from its surroundings. This interface helps define thermal resistance of contacts for inclusion in steady-state thermal analyses in Mechanica. You can define the thermal resistance on surfaces that are touching between different components.
