Defining a custom material for heat transfer analysis


Project here:

I am trying to do a thermal analysis of a “cold box” that has different thickness on each of the four vertical walls. Astoundingly, I’ve gotten to work (thanks in large part to @bdelatti project “Thermal Packaging For Cold Chain” Link to that one:

Here’s the problem - there seems to be no way to define the material as EPS foam, as @bdelatti did.

How do I define a custom material (or access a functional workaround)?

  1. Choose and select any material.
  2. Modify the parameters to meet your materials’ properties, including the name of the material…


Thanks! Lost that one in the shuffle here, I’m afraid.
