You will learn the basics of Heat Transfer in Abaqus through various problems. The simulations demonstrate modeling two- and three-dimensional heat conduction with general, temperature-dependent conductivity; internal energy (including latent heat effects); and quite general convection and radiation boundary conditions. You also get an in-depth look into how the frictional heat generated dissipates and how severe temperature changes cause deformation in things such as in a disk brake. Furthermore, you will analyze a bimetallic strip under conduction heat transfer. All in all, you will get the knowledge to analyze various mechanisms of heat transfer analysis in Abaqus by doing different workshops. Some information for Abaqus heat transfer analysis is available in Abaqus documentation. You can find also professional descriptions about heat transfer and thermal stress analysis in Abaqus in this article on the website.
Workshop 1: simulation of a copper sheet heat transfer in Abaqus:
In this chapter, we go through an example of heat transfer. you will use Abaqus/Standard to investigate heat transfer problems including conduction, forced convection, and boundary radiation. Moreover, there are a number of methods for calculating temperature fields that do not require knowledge of stress/deformation state or electrical field in the body being analyzed. Problems involving pure heat transfer can be transient or steady-state, linear or nonlinear.
Workshop 2: analysis of a bike brake heat transfer in Abaqus:
In this tutorial, we analyze the temperature distribution of a bike brake. Bike brakes absorb the translational mechanical energy through friction and convert it into thermal energy, which is subsequently dissipated.
Workshop 3: simulation of a disk brake heat transfer :
In this workshop, you will use dynamic Explicit Analysis to produce a couple of temperature displacement analyses for Disk Brake. An initial rotational velocity disk brake will come into touch with a disk pad when it comes into contact with it. As a result, you will witness an increase in disk temperature owing to the heat created by energy dissipation and a decrease in rotational velocity because of friction.
Workshop 4 Simulation of frictional heat generation:
In this workshop, we will learn step by step how to model the heat generation due to friction. A 3D FE model of Aluminum was simulated regarding the temperature distribution. We used the tangential and normal behavior of the interaction property to simulate the contact property. You will also learn how to simulate the effect of the model’s initial temperature.
Workshop 5 Simulation of radiation heat transfer:
This tutorial demonstrates how to perform a heat transfer analysis with radiation using Abaqus FEA. A heat transfer analysis is conducted on bread baking in the oven. You will learn how to simulate radiation heat transfer in your models using Surface radiation interaction. In addition, you will discover how to change the model attributes in your simulation.
Workshop 6 Thermomechanical Analysis – bimetallic Strip:
In this lecture, you will develop a coupled thermal-stress simulation of a bimetallic thermostat, in which the temperature field and displacement are solved simultaneously. You will fully learn the measures that you must do in the Step, Interaction, and Load module to simulate the displacement resulting from the thermal stress. you will create a Couple of temperature displacement analyses for an Aluminum-steel thermostat.
Workshop 7 two-dimensional concrete-brick oven Analysis of Heat Transfer in Abaqus
In this workshop, we will build a two-dimensional heat transfer model in a two-layer oven. We will show you how to execute steady-state heat transfer analysis in Abaqus standard step by step. Finally, you will be able to see the graph of temperature distribution and heat flux changes over time.
