heat transfer - heating element to air in FloWorks
 
Hi All,

I Need help in understanding how to make a project in Cosmos FloWorks where there is a heating element surrounded by air and the heating element heats up over time and heat is transferred to the air around it. I want to analyse how the air around it heats up and any fluid motion in the air that is induced as a result of being heated. at the start of the the analysis the air around the heating element is static and any fluid motion should only be as a result of the air being heated.

thanks,

Duncan
