Hi All!!!


I'm doing a linear heat transfer analysis...I started the model in PV/Designer....But when I'm changing the edit element definition...It does not accept...Can PV/Designer model be used for heat transfer analysis?...If not, are there work around to make it work?...


Many Thanks in advance for the help,

Hi Tibor,


It should not matter where the model comes from. So please give a complete description of the problem, maybe even a step-by-step description starting from the Element Definition, when the problem occurs, and what the problem is.


The answer to these questions may be helpful, too:

  1. What version of Simulation Mechanical are you using?
  2. What analysis type are you using?
  3. What element type are you using?
  4. Can you make changes to "Setup > Model Setup > Parameters"?
