Hi everyone.
i'm working on the modelisation of a electric heating equipment, filled with a mineral oil. I manage to obtain convergence of the calculcation but I obtain weird temperatures values on my heating element . I suspect my oil definition to be wrong.

The case is about natural convection of the oil inside the radiator.Is there somebody who have already worked ont this type of case? I'm actually looking for some help about the thermal properties of oil, and the settings of the fluid modelisation...

Thanks for help
