Default Energy [W/m^3] ?????
Posts: n/a
Hi, I'm new in CFD so I'm willing to simulate a heat transfer inside a eletrical motor, so I did a symmetric model (20 degree) in gambit. Using P=R*I^2 and dividing by the total volume of wires I get my power dissipatin in [W/m3]. In Fluent shoul I divide the total power dissipation by 20, once I just working with a 20 degree model? How this energy source [w/m3] in Fluent is settle? Thanks.
