Non-constant boundary condition / Thermal
Hi all,
I'm trying to impose a heat flux boundary condition that varies spatially and is also dependent on the wall temperature. That is;

I'm currently using Ansys 12.0 and Workbench (I'm fairly new to this). I think I've figured out how to do a function for q(x), but I'm not so sure on how to tie in my boundary condition to the wall temperature (what my simulation is solving).

The only way I can think of doing this without too much pain is using a convective boundary condition and defining a spatially defined heat flux coefficient. This would sort of mimic the heat flux function that I need.

Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
