Hi!
I'm quite a new Fluent user and I'm in the learning phase. I hope you can help me out. I am modelling a production room and I need to put in a heat source (pig, actually) which is of constant temperature and generates heat at a constant rate. How can I specify that in Fluent?
Thank you very much.
Leila

You have to give constant temperature in the boundary condition for the volumes. there are three options one is Fixed values in which you can give constant temperature value or in second option for source term where you can give heat generation rate.
