I am trying to add a heat sink for a periodic heat transfer case. I need to find the heat flux added in one cycle (which will be a variable heat flux), and extract it through a source term.

Has anyone had any experience with this or with a cyclic heat transfer case that can shed any light on this? I've exhausted google searching and can't find anything that suits the chtMultiRegionFoam case.

I can extract heat completely fine using the scalarCodedSource, however my problem is that I am currently using constant, arbitrary numbers, instead of a calculated, variable term.

If anyone requires any specific files uploaded, let me know and I can upload them!

Thanks in advance!
