I am new to Ansys mechanical so may be making a few errors. I have a problem where there is a heat input into a structure and i need to assess how the heat conducts through the structure in a transient simulation.
I have set up a transient thermal case in mechanical which is fairly simple with two locations that grow in temperature until the peak temperature.
When i run the simulation the disk spaces grows rapidly and fills the disk within 20 time steps of 1 second. I would like to run for around 600 seconds of real time. Why is mechanical storing so much data? when i stop the simulation the storage on the disk reduces dramatically so it only appears to be a problem when the simulation is running.
any help would be useful!
