Viscous Heating/Dissipation


Hello SimScalers,

I would like to know if the above mentioned phenomenon is possible to be analysed on SimScale.
e.g. heat dissipation in the flow of highly viscous material inside a heated pipe.

In OpenFOAM, it can be simulated using the hot-pluggable fvOption source term and energyTransport function object for incompressible flows.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Warm regards,


Hi @rajan19us!

Unfortunately, this is not yet implemented. It would be great if you could add your request here: Feature Request Section.
