Hello, Everyone:
Recently, I am trying to do the simulation of weld pool in Flow3d, but I don't know how to specify the moving heat souce.
It was said that it can be customized through the programming with fortran ,and I tried, but I don't know to update the calculated heat source valve after every step cycle.
Anyone can help me? thank you so much~

One thing you can do is to create a 100% porous component and make it a heat source. That way it will add heat to the fluid without causing any drag.
