CHT analysis of Waterblock Problem

Hi,

I am trying to analysis the performance of a waterblock I designed with a conjugate heat transfer simulation. Problem is everytime I try to generate a mesh a message saying 'Partial interfaces were detected that are not taken into account. Also when I try to run the simulation i get a message saying ‘Some faces and/or interfaces are unassigned’.

Hi @natanael_aquil

This error occurs when your face is in common to the faces of 2/more bodies(solver cannot tell if that is to be defined as a wall or as a heat transfer interface). The method to eliminate this error is to split your faces(name of the faces are mentioned in the error report at the end of meshing log) accordingly so that the solver can easily resolve the interfaces//or// you can define the interface manually after splitting the faces.

Thanks
Ani
