Quantity—Thermal Analyses
In defining the quantity of the measure, you indicate the type of information you want Creo Simulate to measure, as follows:
Interface—enables you to measure the total power across the interface and also the maximum heat flux through the thermal resistance interface.
* You can define the Interface quantity if you have created any interface in your model.
Temperature—enables you to measure the temperature of your model.
Heat Flux—enables you to measure the transfer of heat for your model in terms of either magnitude or component direction.
Temperature Gradient—enables you to measure the change in temperature over your model in terms of either magnitude or component direction.
Driven Parameter—enables you to tie a measure to a dependent Creo Parametric parameter. For information on this quantity, see Parameter-Based Measures.
Time—enables you to determine the time of first or last occurrence of a measure's value being greater or less than a specified value during a dynamic time analysis.
Computed Measure—enables you to define your own algebraic expression for the measure.
Heat Transfer Rate—enables you to determine the total rate of heat transferred through an imaginary cut in your model.
