Default Handling on exothermic energy - Urgent

Hello,

I am modeling a fuel cell and have the reaction mechanism switched on at the anode side. I would like to know how Fluent handles the exothermic energy released from the reaction of H2-O2. Is it included as a source term in the energy reaction automatically or should I explicitly give that as a energy source term for the volume ?

Thank you!

It should be included automatically. You can run one simple case to check the T change. xc.

Thank you XC ! I did that right after I posted the question and found that the heat is added as source term for the volume where the reaction takes place.
