Hey all.

We are working on the thermoelectric generator, where we want to specify the Peltier effect at a interface between two solids. Since the two solids are of different temperatures we must allow conduction between them. Our question is: how do you add the heat source at this boundary? Using the coupled model only allow us to specify the heat generation in W/m^3 but we want to specify it in W/m^2....

Anyone has an idea of how to do this?

Thanks in advance!

Best regards

The frustrated ones.
