Solid Reference Temperature#

Solid Reference Temperature = CONSTANT <float> [T]

Description / Usage#

This card is used to specify the model for the solid reference temperature used in the thermal expansion of solid materials. Definitions of the input parameters are as follows:


Name of the model for the reference temperature.


A floating point number that is the value of the solid reference temperature, \(T_{ref}\) .


The following is a sample card:

Solid Reference Temperature = CONSTANT 90.0

Technical Discussion#

See the Solid Thermal Expansion card for a discussion of the use of this property in the linear thermoelasticity of solids.
