Different Initial Temperature in Ansys Workbench

  1. Nov 17, 2011 #1

    I'm new in Ansys workbench. I have been studying a casting solidification of a metal in a mold. The metal and the mold have different initial temperature but it seems that I can only define one uniform initial temperature. Does anyone know if it possible to define two different initial temperatures in Ansys workbench?

    I was thinking that I might do a Steady State analysis of the metal and use the data as Dirichlet condition for the mold but then I have to define the ambient temperature where the mold and metal meet. I know the contact coefficient but I can't find the ambient temperature for contact. Does anyone how that is done?
