I am trying to see if I can run a Natural Convection CFD Analysis for a metal plate that heats up under constant power (100W of Joule Heating) for a certain amount of time. Whenever I run the analysis I always get the “Maximum execution time exceeded” error.
I am very new to CFD with OpenFOAM. I have used some other commercial CFD packages that are slightly easier to use, but not OpenFOAM. I dont know if my mesh is too coarse, or if my Simulation Settings are off (and if they are, what are the right settings to tweak-and please explain why so we can understand).
The link is here.
