How to Define Power Sources?

With the power source feature, one can define a volumetric region as a heat source.

  • Power sources can be defined in Convective heat transfer or Conjugated heat transfer simulations.
  • You can find the power source feature under Advanced Concept.
  • Within SimScale, the amount assigned as heat flux will be applied to all volumes instead of being divided up evenly among the volumes.
  • Furthermore, they can either be selected as part CAD or by assigning them using geometry primitives.
