To Define a Heat Flux or Temperature Gradient Measure
This procedure assumes you selected the Temperature Gradient or Heat Flux quantity on the Measure Definition dialog box.
1. Select one of the following components: Magnitude, X, Y, Z.
2. For the components X, Y, and Z, select a coordinate system.
3. Select a spatial evaluation.
4. With the arrow button, select a point and appropriate reference entities as required by your selection for spatial evaluation.
5. Enter a radius value if you selected Near Point in step 3.
6. If you want to define a transient thermal analysis, select the Time Eval check box and specify a time evaluation method.
7. If you want to know the time at which a minimum, maximum, or max abs condition occurs, select the Time Stamp check box.
8. Review the list box at the bottom of the dialog box to determine which type of analysis is valid for the measure.
9. Click OK. Each custom measure shows up on the Measures dialog box.
