Re: thermal fluid and conjugate heat transfer


Hello happyday,

Have a look for the thermal2d or thermal3d example cases. You can see the thermal dynamics coupled via the boussinesq approximation already set up in order to simulate the raighley benard convection.

This model is not capable of simulating internal heat sources so far, but by applying certain boundary conditions you can simulate heat input to the system.

I did some test with conjugated heat transfer by simply defining another material number with another thermal dynamics using a different diffusion coefficient than the fluid. If you are interested in this setup I can send you some more details.

Best, Max
