Hi to all,

I am new to OF and I am looking for a way to define internal heat generation in solid by defining the energy density as W/mm^2. Is it possible? Can anyone help please??

it can be easily done:
1) look at scalarTransportFoam
2)you need only add a source term to the equation
(search in forum how to add a source term in to solver or how to write a new solver)
