in this week’s Project Spotlight we will have a look at the Thermal Shock analysis by @ahmedhussain18.
Type of analysis: Thermostructural Analysis - Uncoupled thermomechanical analysis (advanced)
Transient or steady-state: Transient
Static or dynamic: Static
Nonlinear Analysis: True
Mesh Type: Tet-dominant
Number of cores used for the simulation: 32
Computation time: The analysis ran for a total simulation interval of 468 sec. (7.8 min.) on a 32 core machine and took around 323 min. to complete.
