ANSYS Release 9.0 . 002114 . © SAS IP, Inc. 1–215 VM95 Analysis Assumptions and Modeling Notes The problem is solved first using conducting line elements (LINK33) and convection elements (LINK34) and then using conducting solid elements (SOLID70). The surface convection area is 4 in2 (4/144 ft2) per inch of length. In the first case, the convection elements at the end are given half the surface area of the interior convection elements. Nodes 11 through 19 are given arbitrary locations. In the second case, coupled nodal temperatures are used to ensure symmetry. Unit conversions are done by input expressions. POST1 is used to process results from the solution phase.
