View Full Version : Heat transfer analysis HETVAL
Dear Abaqus users,
I have problem need for advice: In heat transfer analysis, I want to input temperature values for every elements (or nodes) at every time steps during analysis. What subroutine I should use? HETVAL? And how to use it? because Abaqus manual for HETVAL is not much and not clear.
Thank you very much for your time
I believe that you can directly specify the temperature by using the temperature degree of freedom (DOF). I believe it is DOF=11 or 12.
Check the manual for more details.
Dear Mr. Jorgen,
Would you please to give me a brief explanation about "temperature degree of freedom". I cannot find its definition in the manual.
Thank you very much
Check out, for example, Section "25.1.4 Three-dimensional solid element library" in the Analysis User's Manual. That section specifies that the temperature DOF is #11.
Dear Dr Jorgen,
I was wondering if you could give me some advice in this area as well. I am trying to find the average temperature of a surface and then substitute this average to a sink temperature in FILM subroutine. I don't have any ideas how to define the average temperature of a surface. I used TEMP subroutine function but it is for average temperature of an element.
Please find a copy of subroutine below:
DIMENSION H(2),TIME(2),COORDS(3), FIELD(NFIELD)
Thank you !
