Heat flux plot?

      Hello guys


       


      How do I generate a heat flux contour plot at the inlet area of a water pipe? I want to include both the pipe and fluid in the plot.


      Thanks

      You can plot temperatures, what do you expect from a heat flux on a fluid boundary?

      I want to mainly observe the heat flux in the pipe (ignore the fluid) as a result of the temperature variation. This will indicate which locations are redundant within the pipe so that unnecessary material can be potential removed.


      Thanks

      Heat flux to where?  It's usual to plot temperatures or HTC (with caveats: read the field definitions).

      Heat flux from the outer pipe wall to the inner one.

      Have a look in the Wall Fluxes and read the definitions.
