Hello guys,

I was trying to simulate multiple heat sources inside an airconditioned room (which means that there is an inlet and an outlet for air in the room). i tried using rhoPimpleFoam but i doubt if the results are right. I want to study the flow of heat from the heat sources to its surroundings.

What solver should i use? is rhoPimpleFoam sufficient?

I would check out the heat transfer solvers, eg buoyantPisoFoam
all of them can be found in "OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6/applications/solvers/heatTransfer/" and see if there is something there which suits your needs, the main source file will have a description of the solver near the top.
