Considerations for Predicting Thermal Contact Resistance in ANSYS

Mary Kathryn Thompson, John M. Thompson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearch


In many finite element models, thermal contact resistance is either neglected or included only as an intrinsic characteristic of the system. This work presents a discussion of the issues associated with predicting thermal contact resistance and methods for overcoming some of the difficulties associated with doing so in ANSYS.
