i calculated the energy losses (chemical reaction/ohmic heating) of a fuel cell using a udf in fluent. Now i want to implement these energy losses as a volumetric heat source in the middle grey layer of the FC and calculate the generated temperature in the solid regions. Below is a little example how the geometry can look like. To calculate the Temperature i want to connect the fluent model with a thermal transient model to calculate the temperature.
Is it possible to model the volumetric heat source of the thermal transient model with a calculated heat using udf in fluent??
I know that that it is possible to implement a function as a volumetric heat source, but i don´t know how to use a function for heat source which is calculated in a udf in fluent.
Thanks for your help
