Hello, and sorry for the newbie question! I'm trying to use OpenFOAM to model airflow in a data center. Using the hotroom heat transfer tutorial, it's fairly clear how to set temperature and velocity boundary conditions, but what I'd like to do is to set a constant heat inlet that would inject X watts of heat, rather than a number of watts determined by the difference between the inlet temperature and that of the room. Keeping in mind that I'm fairly new to the program, can anyone give me some guidance on how to achieve this result?

Thank you so much in advance!
