Default Heat sink
Posts: n/a
Hi, I'm trying to model a series of heat sinks. I have imported my geometry to gambit by means of a parasolid file. I make a bigger box around my heatsink - and then split this bigger box to give two seperate volumes. I mesh the heatsink as solid. Big box as liquid (air). Giving it a velocity in / outflow, and a heat flux through base. Walls become coupled on import to fluent. But results are crazy. any idea where I'm going wrong?....
