heat source in solid

I'm trying to simulate the heat transfer in a piece of metal, which is heated by an electric current.
I already got a little bit familiar with laplacianFoam, is there some way to model a heat source inside of it?
Or do I have to use a different solver?
Thanks a lot!

heat source in laplacianFoam

you can model heat source! just by add a source term to the laplacianFoam equation
volScalarField q ( IOobject ( "q", runTime.timeName(), mesh, IOobject::MUST_READ, IOobject::NO_WRITE ), mesh );
fvm::ddt(T) - fvm::laplacian(DT, T) - q
then in your case study in folder zero you should add a file name "q"
you can apply different value from uniform or non-uniform heat source
for making the initial non uniform heat source use "setFields" or "funkySetFields"
for install "funkySetField", look at here:
