this is rahul working on cfd analysis of natural convection cross ventilation of a room inside a computational domain. the heat source is provided on a wall.
1. is it fine to define a heat source at wall in boundary condition panel as heat source W/m2
2. Solution is not converging than what should be the problem.
can anyone help me.

did you finally solve your issue?
I am facing convergence issue as well using Fluent for a free convection problem in a side-heated vertical channel. When I use Boussinesq assumption with pressure inlet and pressure outlet BC, I get the AMG solver divergence ( Although I reduced the under-relaxation factors, checked the mesh quality and a bunch of other changes recommended on forums for AMG solver divergence ...).
Using the ideal gas law for density instead of Boussinesq, I obtain a solution but it is unphysical.
Thanks a lot for your (or anyone else's) feedback!
