I am using buoyantBuossineqPimpleFoam to simulate natural ventilation (convection). Basically two heat source (plane with no thickness) create heat and drive the internal air to go up.
So how to define a plane with heatflux rather than temperature?
In addition, anyone know what boundary conditions should be assigned to inlet and outlet so flow only suck in from outside to inlet and flow going out from outlet?


Thank you!

Thank you!
For heatflux, you'll want to specify a temperature gradient. If I remember correctly q = k * dT, so dT = q/k

For in/out flow boundary conditions boundary conditions look at the boundary conditions:
inletOutlet
outletInlt
pressureDirectedInletOutletVelocity
etc
