Thermic expansion in static analysis

Thermic expansion in static analysis

Posted in the ANSYS Forum

I'm a new user of Ansys. I worked a lot with Abaqus and now I'm doing an internship in which I have to use Ansys. I would like to know if it is possible to integer the thermic expansion in a static analysis with forces and pressures... If yes, how to do it? I'm using the workbench, ansys 14.5.

I have a very complicated system (a pump) and I want to simplify it but also staying as close as possible to the reality. For example, the screws, are they necessary? I'm asking because they also expand (it is M27). But then, I didn't find how to define it was screwed, so I put a contact constraint but in this case, I also can fill the hole and put a contact constraint between both parts and it will act the same...

So I need some advices as you can notice. Thanks a lot in advance
