Hi everybody,

I'm running the cavity case in the tutorials/compressible/ras directory. I would like to create a heat source in the fluid region. For example to create a heat source in the center of the domain:

type scalarSemiImplicitSource;
active true;
selectionMode points;
(0.05 0.05 0)

volumeMode specific;
h (10 0);

There are other options instead of using the variable enthalpy, h? can I use temperature directly? as if I have a surface at a constant temperature where the fluid flows around?

Hi Eric,

Did you ever figure out how to implement a heat source with fvOptions?
