Import of Heat3 text input file
Components available as stored within HEAT3 text 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
Heat3 text input file.
Remark: An import of a Heat3 text input file always creates a
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 Heat3
input file, but no boundary conditions (spaces, power sources), the project
created by importing a Heat3 text input file must be edited further prior to
Post processing steps:
- Enter project description.
- Creation of spaces. Location of spaces connected to the model must be
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.
