Check out this video tutorial using SolidWorks Simulation to run a FEA static analysis on a brake rotor from the SolidWorks SAE tutorial. This video shows the set up and running of a static study due to thermal stress. It uses a previously computed thermal distribution study to determine if the brake rotor will warp during braking which can be seen here. The post processing of these results are also covered. I hope you enjoy!
