 June 13, 2007, 04:45 conduction??URGENT!! #1 Donia Guest   Posts: n/a hi, i'm trying to simulate a 2D conduction model!for the BC i impose heating temperature for one side and cooling temperature on the other side!the two other walls are adiabatic!on fluxes report,normally i should have the same heat transfer flux on the two tempered walls (same dimensions) but the net flux is not null!! plz help i didn't find any explanation!! thx

 June 13, 2007, 11:38 Re: conduction??URGENT!! #5 Donia Guest   Posts: n/a hi bashu, thanks for the idea!i tried it,the net flux is minimised but it can't reach 0,it's 0.02!! any other idea plz??
