Default Heat Flux at Interface

I have a geometry where a finned structure is attached to a volume. The surface of the volume that is attached to the fins is generating heat. A fluid then cools the fins. An interface is defined between the volume and the fins and also between the volume and the fluid. I need that surface of the volume to generate heat.

I am curious about how to add a heat flux to a surface that is defined as an interface?

Hi lauren,
can you post a picture of your system? I don't understand how you have set-up the simulation
