The temperature of the shaft can be defined here. The temperature is transferred to the bearing calculation and will induce axial stresses into the shaft.
In case that the shaft temperature is not uniform, the user must set the flag corresponding to ‘Consider temperature per element’ at the tab-page ‘Settings’. That allows the user to add a temperature difference ‘ΔT’(±) for each element created at the outer geometry on the temperature previously set at the tab-page ‘General’. The reference temperature with no stress field is 20°C.
