Hi, I have selected some surfaces as name selection and want to know the Average heat flux through those areas. The analysis is steady-state thermal in the workbench.

Hi uschas,

If you are using ANSYS Workbench 19.0, Heat Flux now includes an average value.

Thanks, Is there any way to do it in ANSYS 18? I dont have ANSYS 19. The student version is limited to number nodes.

That is a new feature in ANSYS 19.0, which is available for Student, Research and Commercial licenses now.

If you want to do that in ANSYS 18, you will have to export tabular data and perform your own averaging.

Peter, if you manually average those two values the result is different than the one provided by ANSYS

The average is not half way between the Min and the Max, it is the average of all the nodes along the edge.
