To Exclude Elements From a Thermal Analysis
This procedure assumes you are in the dialog box for creating a steady thermal analysis or a transient thermal analysis.
1. Click the Excluded Elements tab on the analysis dialog box.
2. If you want to exclude elements, select the Exclude Elements check box.
3. Make sure that the Exclude option on the required IEAC mesh controls is checked.
Note that if an IEAC mesh control is suppressed or the Exclude option on an IEAC AutoGEM Control dialog box is not checked, Creo Simulate does not exclude the elements that are grouped as the IEAC from the analysis.
4. Select the quantities you want Creo Simulate to ignore in calculating results for excluded elements—Heat Flux or Heat Flux and Temperature.
5. If you want to limit the polynomial order for excluded elements, select the Polynomial Order check box.
6. Select the polynomial order at which you want to stop calculations in excluded elements.
