i am currently trying to investigate the thermal behavior of the real contact area during tribological loading using Workbench. As i am a novice in regard to simulating, I have a quick question regarding the loading and time step adjustments of my simulation.
We need multiple thermal loads across the surface designated to area sections that last about 1e-5s and that "fire off" multiple times within a second. Thats why the first approach is to create 1/1e-5 amounts of step and apply the loads onto the steps. However even one second requires 100.000 steps. Is there a better approach that would allow us to run the simulation and potentially simulating a time of 10-20 min?
I would appreciate any help or tipps.
