ANSYS doubt about Thermal methods
Hi everyone,

I am working with ANSYS 13, Steady State and Transient methods, and I dont get good results when I try to simulate the thermal gradient of a multilayer sample composed by materials with different thermal conductivities.
It works in plane direction, but not out of plane. I am applying a constant temperature at the bottom and a heat flux at the top... some other idea?
Does ANSYS calculate the Thermal Conductivity or you have to do it manually with the temperature results?

Thank you very much!!
