Hello Everyone,

I have a pipe from which some fluid is flowing. At the outside wall of a pipe, I have some electrical devices that are touching the pipe from the outside. The power dissipation of those devices are given and this will have some effect on the fluid flow.

I want to know that how to use this power as a boundary condition for a fluid passing through the pipe?

I read that I can only use power using fvoptions. Does it mean that I can directly give power into the fvoptions in absolute OR specific mode, and then it can be used as boundary condition?

Thank you
