Dear all,

In CFD-Post not able to evaluate 'heat flux' or 'wall heat flux' on any clipped surface created on the geometry, i get the error: "Heat flux is not available on 'clipped surface' or gives me zero value.

Any ideas to solve the problem?
I want to calculate the heat flux through just a specific part of the model.

If I understood correctly, you would need to create a location>plane to specify a variable contour - not a clipped plane as that is just a graphical section of your model.
