Forces generated by thermal expansion can be significant and proper analysis techniques need to be implemented.
With Ansys’s capabilities in conduction, convection, radiation, temperature dependent material models, and internal heat generation, complex systems can be accurately simulated. These can be further advanced by performing FSI with a CFD model.
