Hello everyone,

I'm a beginner in ANSYS and I'm interested in adding a heat source to a body that is temperature dependent.

It's something like: constant*(50-T), where the constant has units (W/m3/celcius) and 50 is in celcius. It accepts constants and operations but not T or TEMP...

With this heat source, the heat equation is still linear, but what if I want to add something like exp(-T) that makes the heat equation nonlinear? Is the same procedure?

Thanks a lot!
