Thermal and DC simulation of a crazy resistor, how to do it?

Hello, I am trying to find my way through ADS SI/PI to simulate a PCB trace resistor temperature field (DC and thermal analysis).


Basically, just a jumper where 10V goes in, passing through a perfect 0R jumper and going to copper-trace resistor (~9.1 Ohms).

Here a screenshot of how this looks like inside SI/PIPro:


Since the pins of the trace resistors are basically shorted, by the meandered trace, I am struggling to make the simulation spit any result.

I've added my workspace files to this post hoping that a generous soul would be interested in this puzzle.


Thanks a lot,
