Why is the “Zero-Thermal-Strain Reference Temperature” that is defined in Engineering Data not producing a material-dependent reference temperature (REFT)?
June 6, 2022 at 9:58 amFAQParticipant
That quantity is not the reference temperature (REFT) that is used in thermal strain calculations. It is the definition temperature (DEFTEMP) used in the MPAMOD command to convert temperature-dependent SCTE data. REFT is specified in the Detail panel for each body. It is not specified in Engineering Data.
