Hi there,

I'm quite new to Ansys Workbench and I've been learning the program through youtube tutorials and threads from this forum.

I'm trying to model a fire test simulation (Assembly as shown in Figure) to analyse the stress and strain performance on the connection plates under fire. I've got the geometry modelled (I only modelled half the assembly as it is symmetric and to simplify the model, I've only modelled the column, connection and half the beam with the 40kN loads). I'm a bit lost to model the fire conditions. Do I use transient thermal analysis? How do I model the temperature to simulate realistic convection through the beam and whatnot?

If you can help me out with the process and procedure of how you'd simulate it, it'll be much appreciated.
