How can i apply thermal bowing on only analysis set 3. When i check the thermal bowing option for analysis set 3 it is also checked for the other analysis set. this occurs in spite of the fact that i specified : apply thermal bowing to thermal case t2 only in thermal bowing definition window.
Thermal bowing application or non-application is selected once and applies to all analysis sets. It gets associated with the load case you identify on thermal bowing dialog and after that it can be controlled at the segment level i.e. determine on which segments to apply and which ones to ignore/skip. This may be confusing to some users as they enable it inside of an analysis set and there is no warning / message that it will be applied to ALL analysis sets.
Again, the main confusion for the users is because the control to enable/disable thermal bowing is provided at static analysis set dialog even though it is not controlled at analysis set level and implies directly to a load case. The original intent was to turn it on an off during all analysis sets and not individual set.
The CAE development team is considering one or more of the following options:
A. Consider making Thermal Bowing an analysis set specific option
B. Add a warning that this applies to all analysis sets.
The workaround at the moment seems easy to only use thermal bowing with its own thermal case
