Hello All,

This question is for ANSYS ICEPAK. I had a question regarding the temperatures I get using a 2-resistor network within a block and assigning some power at the junction. Once it is done running, I get some temperatures at the junction and the two sides that had the resistances applied.

My question is that the temperatures do not follow the resistance network, why is that? For example, I should be able to back calculate the junction temperature by using the temperatures from either side and the corresponding resistances, or at least get within the ballpark. My temperatures do not follow this logic and I cannot trust my results.
