How can I convert the value of the 3d heat source into 2d axisymmetric case? Say I have a 100W losses in a straight cable. In 3D case I simply divide the source by the volume of the cable and apply it in Fluent as a source for cell zone in [W/m3]. How should I calculate this value in 2d axisymetric case?
