Default surface heat flux
Posts: n/a

Does anyone know why the only geometry of material '198 Solid with smooth-wall friction' is a cube. Is it possible for me to change the geometry associated with this material to a half sphere or half cylinder? I would like to be able to set the surface heat flux of a half sphere.

Thanks in advance

A possibility is to use a solid half-sphere of participating material with a volumetric heat source of appropriate magnitude, and a plate (circular) on the flat surface. Heat will then be transferred into the solid half-sphere and out through the curved surfaces and into the surrounding fluid.
