I am currently trying to simulate a multi layer device which generates heat at its core. I would like to visualize the heat flux vectors through the device and into the surrounding air in my model.
After simulating, I can visualize the velocity vector of the air just fine as the device heat up the air. When I try to display the Wall Heat Flux vectors I do not see anything. I've tried multiple different ways to do it, but in general I followed the steps in this tutorial. What is interesting is that when I change the length of the vectors in the edit dialog box and close it, they return to 0 when I re-open the edit dialog box.
I am new to autodesk, so I suspect I am doing something fundamentally wrong. Has anyone else tried to visualize heat flux vectors? I haven't found anything online yet.
You are not doing anything obviously wrong, we just cannot show heat flux vectors - we only show vectors within the fluid.
Thanks for the info. Is it possible to show the wall heat flux vectors? It is an option under the "Vector". When I select this option, nothing shows up. What is it used for?
