Surface heat flux

The Surface heat flux boundary condition describes a heat flux over boundary faces of the domain. As it is defined per unit surface area the total heat flux entering or exiting the domain is dependent on the surface area of the assigned faces.


  • For positive values the heat flux enters the body, for negative values it represents heat leaving the body.
