Is it also possible to enter a temperature for a surface in XZ plane via the height (variable in Z)?


Yes, it is possible.

When applying a new surface load, it is possible to set 'Temperature' as the load type. Instead of applying a uniform load distribution, it is possible to apply a variable load distribution (for example, linear in Z).

For the load values, you can control if a constant temperature or a delta temperature should be applied.

This results in the following load specification:

And the following results (here the deformation):


Temp Temperature Variable Differently Constant
