StructuralSurfaceActionThermal

Thermal load on surface elements

The thermal load on the surface elements (StructuralSurfaceMember). The variation of the thermal load can be constant or linear over the cross-section of the beam.

Type of data

Value example or enum definition

Required value

Description

Name

String

LT1

yes

Human readable unique name of the load

Variation

Enum

Constant

Linear

yes

Specifies how the temperature varies

Constant: The load is defined by means of a single value T1. The value specifies the change in temperature of the 2D member (straight ΔT). Temperature change is constant along the cross-section.

Linear: The load is defined by means of a set of two values T1 and T2. The individual values specify the temperature at individual surfaces - top, bottom of the 2D member.

TempT [°C]

Double

18

yes

Specifies the first size of the load in Celsius/Fahrenheit.

For constant: Delta temperature on the center plane

For linear: Temperature of top surface (LCS direction +z) of 2D member

TempB [°C]

Double

18

yes, if Variation = Linear

Specifies the second size of the load in Celsius/Fahrenheit.

For linear: Temperature of bottom surface (LCS direction -z) of 2D member

2D Member

String

S15

yes

The name of the StructuralSurfaceMember or StructuralSurfaceActionDistributionwhich is the surface load related to.

2D Member Region

String

R1

yes, if on region

The name of the StructuralSurfaceMemberRegion to which is the surface action related if it is available on 2D member.

Load case

String

LC1

yes

The name of the load case to which the load belongs

Parent ID

no

Is filled for objects created be dividing curved geometry to series of straight line objects. Parent ID will ensure that curved edge is imported as straight parts to nonsupporting application, and back to original supporting application as curved geometry.

To ensure successful round trip of segmented objects and their related objects, Parent ID needs to be present in both directions.
