QUESTION: Is Uniform temperature used to calculate horizontal displacement ?


Uniform temperature is used to calculate horizontal displacement. The program calculates and reports the displacement in X direction and this feature was added in the  version V12.01.00.57 and the same uniform temperature is not used for stress calculation .

To figure out the stresses user needs to use Gradient and Multi linear Temperature option.
