Heat flux advanced BC

Recommended Posts

I am solving a conjugate heat transfer problem (Acusolve 13), with the need to import element heat fluxes as boundary conditions on given faces.  The heat fluxes are imported to acuconsole from a text file (element, value). No problems until running the solver.


Problem #1 - If I use (advanced) element boundary condition heat flux AND simple boundary conditions flag, the simple BC nodal conditions take precedence.  Result = no imposed heat flux.  (I think.., I can't find a method to view or review the surface flux during post processing)


Problem #2 - Unchecking the simple BC command and simply using advanced options element boundary conditions table.  Acusolve.exe crashes with no error or warning.  


Problem #3 - I can't find a method to visualize the heat flux on a surface during post processing to see what AcuSolve actually chose to impose as BC's


The solver does not crash if all BC's are omitted from the components I am trying to impose a heat flux upon.
