Modelling dimension changing materials?

Posted in the ANSYS Forum

My prior experience in working with Ansys is through the buckling of pressure vessels.

But I'm now also using it for heat transfer simulations over time through solid materials, such as steam pipes where over time the pipe wall becomes thinner and a layer of oxide thickens.

Given that I have the rates of thickness changes to input directly, is it possible to run a simulation where there are constant forces (heat and pressure) while at the same time the dimensions of the material change at set rates?
