HI all, I am trying to simulate a steel shaft initially having been heated to 850C being submerged in water for 15 minutes. I have created a transient thermal simulation with convection (coefficient 450 W/m^2 and 40C), and have this solve for temperature I then used the results of this to import the body temperature as a thermal load in a static structural system, however its solutions seem to be invalid. For the static structural, all quantities (total deformation, equivalent elastic strain, thermal strain, equivalent stress, and strain energy) all remain 0 for all time steps. I'm wondering why this may be?
Edit: I think I may have found the source of issue. In static structural, I set the environment temperature to 40C, since that is the temperature of the water the steel is submerged in. However, perhaps this temperature being the same as in the convection causes these solutions of 0?
