Pro/MECHANICA THERMAL is a Conduction Heat Transfer program. It is capable of calculating heat flow through solid objects. It does not calculate fluid dynamic heat transfer type problems. Heat is applied to exterior surfaces of the solid model. Enforced temperatures and convection are applied as exterior boundary constraints. Convection requires the user to calculate and input the film coefficient and bulk ambient temperature. The current release of Pro/MECHANICA does not handle radiation boundary conditions.
