Thermal and thermal stress

Module overview

Explore and compare the effects of thermal and thermal stresses on designs. Temperature and heat can be a major factor in the failure of a design, so exploring a design’s performance can lead to better informed design decisions. We’ll also look at event simulation and how a design performs when subject to motion and how it responds to an impact.

After completing this module, you’ll be able to:

  • Explain how thermal loading can happen.
  • Create thermal simulation studies.
  • Describe types of thermal transfer that can be defined.
  • Review an event simulation study.
