Creates an initial temperature constraint for a thermo-mechanical analysis.


  1. Click on FEM ConstraintInitialTemperature.png or choose ModelThermal ConstraintsFEM ConstraintInitialTemperature.png Constraint initial temperature from the top menu.
  2. Enter an initial temperature value for the analysis.


The constraint applies the initial temperature to all nodes in the FEA model


  1. The constraint uses the **INITIAL CONDITIONS card in CalculiX. The initial temperature constraint is explained at http://web.mit.edu/calculix_v2.7/CalculiX/ccx_2.7/doc/ccx/node215.html
