Advanced Thermal Structural Analysis in CivilFEM

Thermal-structural coupled analysis involves calculating the temperature distribution (steady-state or transient) within a structure, which is due to thermal boundary conditions (conduction, convection and radiation) and to determine the thermal effects on it, such as: Material properties modification (young´s modulus, yield strength, etc.). Induced thermal stresses and the combined effect with other structural loads on the structure behavior and design: increase of needed reinforcement in concrete, instabilities or buckling on steel structures, higher stresses and deformations, etc. CivilFEM 2017 allows to perform detailed advanced heat transfer and thermal-structural coupled analyses. Some of the main features are: Material thermal properties definition (thermal conductivity and specific heat) with linear and non-linear behavior (temperature dependent properties). Thermal Orthotropic material properties. Convective and conductive boundary conditions on any type of elements. Non-linear steady-state or transient analyses. Postprocessing results for heat transfer analysis (temperature, thermal flux and thermal gradients with vector plots). Steady-state/static or transient thermal-structural coupled analysis. The aim of this online webinar is to present CivilFEM 2017 advanced thermal-structural coupled analysis and some of the civil engineering applications, such as early-age thermal cracking in concrete due to heat of hydration, effects of ambient temperature, solar radiation or fire protection and to provide a general overview on the modeling and design capabilities.
