Concept: Reviewing Interfaces


Reviewing Interfaces
This topic illustrates how the different interface types influence the assembly analysis result in a structural
and a thermal analysis.

Illustrated here are:

• Interfaces in Simulate Structure – Shown in the top set of images in Figure 1 are two plates under a
surface load. The second, third, and fourth sets of images show bonded, free, and contact surfaces,
respectively.

Figure 1 – Two Plates with a Surface Load

• Interfaces in Simulate Thermal – Shown in Figure 2 are two blocks with different prescribed
temperatures. The top image illustrates a thermal resistance interface, and the bottom image illustrates
an adiabatic interface with no heat flow.
