Hello everyone,

I am trying to consider the Heat transfer coefficient at some surfaces.

How do I create a surface zone at the place where I want for examining results?

If I try to create "new surface /plane" I have to put in 3 points to define the location in 3D, but this gives me the surface which is infinite in the length direction.

Can someone tell me how I can only display a surface with specified x and y length?


Best regards
h0rst

Create the infinite surface as before.

Then do an iso-clip on that surface. It will create a new surface. You can clip using the mesh coordinates.
