Thermal gadient for Plate and Beam element
I will like to know how can I assign a thermal gradient load to an assembly where girders are modeled as beam elements and the deck is modeled as a plate element. Please refer to attach model.
I need to assign a thermal gradient load with 10 C at top of the concrete deck and 0 C at the bottom flange of the precast girder. I have already defined sections for resultant forces for your convenience.
You can do it as shown below.
Please refer to the attached model.
