To Define MEC/T Temperature Loads
You need to be in Structure, and have defined a steady-state or transient thermal analysis in Thermal before you follow this procedure.
1. Click Home > Loads > MEC/T Load. The MEC/T Temperature dialog box opens.
2. Specify a name for the load or use the default name.
3. Select an existing load set from the Member of Set area or use the New button to create a new load set.
4. If you have defined a standard design study that includes a thermal analysis the Use previous design study check box is available and selected. Clear this check box if you do not want to use the design study for the MEC/T load.
5. If you selected the Use previous design study check box select a Design Study from the drop-down list.
6. Select a thermal analysis from the Analysis drop-down list.
7. If you selected a steady-state thermal analysis, select a Load Set from the drop-down list.
8. If you selected a transient thermal analysis, select a Step from the drop-down list.
9. Specify a real number or expression for the Reference Temperature. Select units of temperature from the adjacent units drop-down list.
10. Click OK to accept the dialog box.
If there are no definition problems, the load that you specified is added and an MEC/T load icon is added to the geometry, else a warning message is displayed.
Return to MEC/T Temperature Loads.
