Import of Heat2 input file

Components available as stored within HEAT2 input file can be easily imported as used as starting point for further modelling and simulation.

Only material elements and empty boxes are imported from a Heat2 input file.

Remark: An import of a Heat2 input file always creates a 2D project.
Remark: The volumetric heat capacity will be imported into the Rho value. Ce will be set to 1.0.

Post processing of imported data

Because only geometry and conductivities of material elements are read from a Heat2 input file, but no boundary conditions (spaces, power sources), the project created by importing a Heat2 input file must be edited further prior to simulation.

Post processing steps:

  • Enter project description.
  • Creation of spaces. Location of spaces connected to the model must be defined manually.
    Hint: The quickest possibility to add spaces is by inserting space elements at the top of element list, thus letting all other (imported) elements to overlap them accordingly.
