Max. Temperature

Max. Temperature result shows the maximum temperature in the thickness direction at current time step.

The maximum temperature is calculated by interpolating from the temperature values of all elements closest to the path along the thickness direction.

 

The nodes shown in blue are taken into interpolation of the maximum temperature.

Note that this diagram does not show nodes in the direction normal to this view.

You can use Max. Temperature result to quickly check if there is any local heat accumulation inside the cavity. Local heat accumulation is caused by unbalanced cooling and can lead to non-uniform volumetric shrinkage. In this case you should modify the cooling channel layout to improve cooling balance.
