How to apply a "Heat Flux" boundary condition on a vertex in ANSYS Workbench
I want to solve in Workbench a 1D problem of heat conduction. In the same way that I am able to apply a "Force" boundary condition on a vertex in the structural analysis, I want to apply a "Heat Flux" on a vertex in the thermal analysis (the equivalent to a force in the structural study), but I cannot do it from the "Mechanical" application. I am only able to impose a "Temperature" or "Heat Flow" boundary condition on a vertex. Any clue about it? Isn't it possible to solve a 1D problem of thermal analysis as I can do it for the structural part?
My geometry is composed of lines that have assigned a circular cross-section.
