Hi everyone!

Is it possible to simulate electric heating elements as show in the attached picture, and is heat flow?

How can i do this in ansys?

Yes, it's possible, at least with fluent.
You need to write an udf for the released heat.
There's a tutorial on ansys support, search for homic heater.

Google is your friend and the same for the search button!
