Hello!

I want to map radiative heat flux (x,y,z,j_rad) on a certain face F of a solid domain S. I do this using Initialise Profile Data function, and the reason for it is that I have a radiative heat flux distribution on the face F calculated in another sofware.

My solid S is totally enclosed by fluid = air. Now: when I map the the external data (Use Profile Data) on the face F, I have a boundary condition defined on F but the Interface between F and fluid domain is lost, i.e. I can not define Interface to model heat transfer from F to air. HOW COULD I SOLVE THIS AND MODEL/DEFINE ALSO INTERFACE?

Any ideas, or am I missing something?

Use a heat source term on the interface boundary. Then you have the normal interface between domains, and can add your defined heat flux where ever you like.
