Temperature to energy loss
 
Hi,

I am moddelling a heater in a room with a open door. Due to an external windpressure and energy losses through the walls of the room, I gain temperature and air velocity profiles. Now I would like to know how much energy is lost through the open door, and how much is lost through the walls. Therefore I added a line along the wal (line A) and a line along the open door (line B), which I can use under the "solution-tab" - surface monitors. I would like to make a graph of the energy loss. Which one do I need? Does "field variable" Temperature- Total energy give me the right results? And if so, which report type do I need?

regards,

Vcent
