I am trying to simulate material removal from laser irradiation in workbench. I import my thermal load from transient thermal analysis to transient structural analysis and then I want to use a EKILL command to neutralize the elements above a certain temperature in the structural analysis. It seems the ADPL command cannot see the imported temperature field when I use the "NSEL" command to select the nodes above the specified temperature. I use SOLID227 elements to enable the temperature DOF on the nodes in structural analysis. When I plot the TEMP user defined result I also cannot observe the imported body temperature in the solution module.
The same mechanical ADPL command works fine in the Thermal analysis module. It seems that the imported body load is probably not imported in the database of the structural solution and therefore the ADPL command cannot see it... I'm lost on this part! If someone has an idea it would be a big help!
