midas GTS NX 2019 v1.1 Release: Thermal Analysis


The new thermal analysis module includes heat transfer, thermal stress, and seepage-thermal stress analysis types. This analysis type can be used to model the thermal changes in the ground due to environmental changes, or due to the construction of facilities, such as buildings or pipelines. In GTS NX, thermal energy can be exchanged based on the following phenomenological ways: conduction and convention. Thermal analysis (heat transfer, thermal stress, seepage-thermal stress) are available as the steady-state analysis and transient analysis (time-dependent).


After the heat transfer analysis, results such as temperature distribution, temperature gradient, and heat flow direction/size are printed. Thermal stress and thermal deformation due to generated/exchanged heat can be obtained from thermal stress analysis (thermo-mechanical study). Seepage-thermal stress analysis allows for hydrothermal mechanical simulation. Both structural analysis results and seepage/heat transfer analysis results are output. 



The new version includes the following features.

  1. Analysis
    1. Construction stage new analysis types - Heat Transfer, Thermal Stress, Seepage-Heat Stress
    2. Soft soil creep - tensile strength
    3. Analysis setting update
    4. Interface relative displacement result output request
    5. Nonlinear time history/SRM - analysis case update

  2. Pre/Post-Processing
    1. Material/property/contact thermal properties
    2. Layer control tool
    3. Result history output probes, history graph
    4. Flow path
    5. Slice plane vector
    6. GTS NX - Gen - Civil result exchange
    7. Load table import/export




midas GTS NX 2019 v1.1 is released.
