How To Examine Heat Flux Results In ANSYS® Mechanical?
First of all, you need to define the required boundary conditions for your physical model and you need to obtain the required mesh structure. After these, you can see the heat flux result. You can also apply heat flux as a boundary condition.
To insert the ‘Total Heat Flux’ result, just right-click on the ‘Solution’ tab then hover your mouse on the ‘Insert’ tab. And click on the ‘Total Heat Flux’ from the ‘Thermal’ menu.
Heat flux is the total energy transition per unit area. Which has generally the unit of ‘W/m^2’.
Looking at the heat flux solution results in ANSYS® thermal analyses is very simple like above.
