Femap Tips and Tricks: Convert data from a thermal analysis into a load case.


Next, in the Output Set Contour box, select the vector 9000000..Temperature (deg C).





The next step is to convert this results vector into a load case. In the menu, select Model > Load > From Output, enter a title in the following dialog, and click OK.



As this is nodal temperature data, in the Select Type of Load dialog, select Temperatures in the Nodal Loads column and click OK.



In the subsequent Create Loads From Output dialog, pick up the temperature vector in the X Vector box, and click OK.



The temperature load definition has now been created.
