 November 16, 2009, 20:25 field function to point variable temperature #1 New Member   Francesco Join Date: Nov 2009 Posts: 9 Rep Power: 7 Hi to all! I've made a field function relating to this equation: R = 3E-10 *T^3 - 6E-08 *T^2 + 3E-05 *T + 0,0148 where R is the thermal resistance and T is the temperature of my component. Now I want to relate T value to surface points and mapping the distribution of R How can i put inside the equation the variable temperature refering to the surface temperature distribution? If it could not be possible, how can I relateT to the warmest surface point? Thank you to everybody ! Francesco

So simply substute \$Temperature for T in your equation. Then display R on the scene to see that it looks sensible. If you do want the warmest point, create a Max report of temperature with the surface as the input part. Then use the newly created report field function (named something like Report.MaxTemp) is your equation.
