# SS-V: 5000 Coupled Analysis - Bimetallic Beam Under Thermal Load

Test No. VNL01 Find temperature at the material interface and maximum deflection of the beam.

## Definition

The layers of materials are: 0.05 x 0.5 x 10 inch

**Properties: Material 1****Value**- Modulus of Elasticity
- 1.e+7 psi
- Poisson's Ratio
- 0
- Coefficient of Thermal Expansion
- 14.5e-6 1/F
- Thermal Conductivity
- 5 BTU/(hr-in-F)

**Properties: Material 2****Value**- Modulus of Elasticity
- 1.e+7 psi
- Poisson's Ratio
- 0
- Coefficient of Thermal Expansion
- 2.5e-6 1/F
- Thermal Conductivity
- 5 BTU/(hr-in-F)

The temperature at the top and bottom surfaces is 400 degrees F.
