Hello,

In my simulation the heat flow balance is wrong, the net difference is equal to 0.5 [W] which corresponds to 5% of inflow

I created two symmetry boundaries in the model, because my geometry has two symmetry planes (it's a cylinder with some cuboidal stuff inside), does it mean that those symmetry boundaries shouldn't be there?

I guess I should also run simulation for a little bit longer (residuals and monitor point values are fine), and then run it on refined grid, right?

Do you have any suggestions?

thanks, Pawel

I created finer mesh (3milion cells) and inbalance dropped about 10times, so I guess that was the main reason.
