We analysed a liquid cooled heat sink using fluent, we first opted for pressure outlet condition but we find lots of oscillating residuals hence we gone for outflow condition,this works good and had a better convergence and without oscillation, i want to know whether this change will affect the physical process,and what Flow Rate Weighting denotes ? can we take default value as 1?; we gave velocity inlet as a inlet condition,Thanks in advance
