Fluent heat transfer not working as expected in some areas

    • Sahan Danansuriya

      Hi all,

      I'm currently doing a heat transfer analysis between a compressor housing and cooling water using Fluent. I'm doing a steady state analysis using the student software (limited to 500,000 elements). The compressor is expected to have two hotspots which I have set up as surface temperatures. However, only one hotspot is working as expected and the other isn't. 

      Both applied surface temperatures are the same. I've attached images of the side that is working and the side that isn't.

      Any advice is greatly appreciated! Happy to provide more information :)
