TOPSFIELD ENGINEERING DOWNLOADS
We thought that TSS users might have an interest in work that we have done getting temperature data from TSS into NASTRAN for a deflection analysis. The .zip file contains some powerpoint pix's and a 2 page writeup of our results.
The methods that we use allow us to build a thermal model independent of the structural model, with some basic ground rules, and then process the temperatures into a temperature load set for a NASTRAN run.
For Thermal Desktop users, the caseat1.zip file contains the Nastran and Thermal Desktop files for the thermoelastic analysis of a small, thermally conditioned plate. This download is mentioned in our presentation at the 16th Spacecraft Thermal Control Workshop at The Aerospace Corporation, March 9 - 11 2005.
