Thermal modelling of a ship structure using ANSYS
I am trying a find out the thermal stresses in a ship structure, exposed to 4 mediums at different temperatures. Kindly suggest if this could be done with ANSYS. I am using ANSYS 12.1 (APDL).
Also, will it be better to draft the structure in ANSYS or should i import it from Pro-engineer or other related packages.
Any help would be highly appreciated.
Thanks a lot in advance.

Do an CHT case link cfd and thermal, import the data all the info to do this can be found in the manual, i suggest reading it first as contains a lot of helpful data.

But also consider if you actually need to run this as a CFD case at all tbh, you could prob run this as a straight thermal case and reduce the runtime massively.
