Default Heat transfer through solid
Posts: n/a

In the FLUENT manual, it talks about modeling a heated surface between 2 zones, but I do not understand it completely.

I am modeling air flow over a 2-D stream-lined body. There is a constant-temperature heating element (surface) on the bottom surface of the streamlined body. Obviously, there is conduction of heat away from the heating element on the lower surface by the air.

I want to see how much heat is lost through conduction on the upper surface to the flow above the body.

How can I do this, i.e. definition of boundary conditions? My heated element appears with a shadow zone. (?)

Thanks in advance!
