Can I perform convection and radiation analysis on beam elements?


Is it possible to use beam elements for convection or radiation?

Applies to:

  • nTop 3.9.3
  • Thermal Analysis


Only thermal conductivity works with beam elements. We do not support convection and radiation for beams since they require faces to work.
