Solid Properties

Typical values for thermal conductivity, specific heat capacity, and the density for common solid materials

Parameters

Parameters for User Defined Temp (Optional)

Description

Tip: In the model workspace, place this component at the same level as the Heat Transfer Library components or subsystem to which you want to assign properties.

For example, if you place this component at the top level of the model, the properties will apply to all of the Heat Transfer Library components and subsystems in your model. If you place this component within a subsystem, the properties defined in the component will apply to the Heat Transfer Library components in that subsystem only and all nested subsystems.

You can change the name of the material from the default name of SolidPropertyData to an arbitrary material name.

User Defined and Material named property components are constant values.
But you can also define temperature dependent material properties by using User Define Temp.
