Turn imported load in non-tabular data

    • hansophxy


      I have imported a temperature load distribution from a precedent transient thermal analysis in a static structural analysis at a certain point in time. I apply the load as "ramped" in one load step.

      Since I have a model with very significant different non-linearities, obtaining convergence is very difficult. I now suspect buckling issues to be the cause on non-convergence. So I wanted to use the Arclength algorithm and see if I can obtain convergence. But that algorithm does not support tabular loads in Ansys. Does anyone know how I can apply the temperature load without having to specify the source time in the table?

      Thank you in advance, best greetings!
