hai ,

Though this is very simple i am getting confused so i need to confirm. if we want to give a value in the BC'S panel in the energy source term,fluent console has units as watt/(sq. meter) so what value should be given if the power is 200 watts????? if the dimensions are in cm.

when you scale the problem in fluent you setting the value of the geometry then fluet take this for calculation, i think that if you set a source term in surface fluent calculate the area and the heat that chage between wall and fluid.
