Heat Transfer and Thermal-Stress Analysis with Abaqus

The success of many structural designs requires a thorough understanding of both the thermal and mechanical response of the design. Temperature-dependent material properties, thermally-induced deformation, and temperature variations all may be important design considerations. Practical examples and workshops are used to illustrate these capabilities in Abaqus.
