Heat eneration and convection in the same element

Recommended Posts



I am performing an steady state Heat Transfer analysis. I have a battery meshed in Hypermesh and I want to create a heat generation in all his elements and free convection to a node with the air reference temperature to the surfaces. I generate the heat with a load type QVOL and the convection with the convection card in interface surfaces, but when I try to perform the simulation an error message appears saying:

*** ERROR # 5028 ***
 QVOL does not refer to valid heat conduction elements.
 QVOL ID = 3.

Is there any possibility to have both in the same element: heat generation and convection?
