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.

Specification in the excel

Name of the column header
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.
