Dear all,
I want to simulate smoke caused by a fire.
A small description of my case: smoke source of v=4.71e-3 m3 inside a room of 1x1x1 m3 . I want to express the Heat release rate(HRR)according to t-squared method= alpha x time^2; where alpha is a constant depending of the fire type.

Now, how can I add HRR as a source in the energy equation for only the smoke source.

Thank you in advance,
