faisal_durr is on a distinguished road
Hi. Suppose I have a salt bath model and I create the same scale model in CFD. Now for the salt bath model I will obviously introduce brine through a nozzle to create a plume (to mimic heat source). Now instead of creating a brine source in the CFD model I wana use a heat source by defining an area with a heat flux in Watts or W/m^2. Suppose the areas of the nozzle opening area in the SBM and the heat source are in the CFD model are the same. How do I calculate how much heat flux to put in my CFD model in watts or W/m^2? If you guys could help me with this one I would really be thankful. Thank you.
