Frictional heat generation models can be solved either using MAPDL solver in the Mechanical systems such as Static Structural systems or using LS-DYNA solver in Workbench LS-DYNA systems. For the latter, the default contact keywords need to be modified to include the frictional heat generation through keyword snippet. 

Frictional heat generation is not available in Explicit Dynamic systems.
