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


Yes, it is possible.

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

For the load values, you can specify whether the constant temperature or the delta temperature should be applied.

This results in the following load specification:

And the following results (deformation in this case):


Temp Temperature Variable Differently Constant
