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.
