did you run a time-dependent study? without that box checked Flow will only save the converged conditions.
How did you define the heat sources? as constant temperature or wattage of heat generated? To be accurate you need to define the watts created and let Flow solve for the actual temperatures.
Yes, I finally figured it out on my own and came across a tutorial video also which explained some steps in creating the animation.
What I've done is create a time dependent study with physical time and defined the capacitors as having the initial temperature 100'C (Insert -> Initial Condition).
Then I run the time dependent study with the cool air running around them, and monitor how much physical time it takes to cool them to a certain temperature (say 30'C). I have succesfully ran and measured the time yesterday for one material. Today I'm hoping to change the material and that the times it takes to cool the components will also change.
Thank you again for the answer!
I am interested in showing such behavior as well. Can you tell a little more about the study parameters and the goals to achieve this please ?
sebastien, if you haven't done so already, check out the tutorials, there is an electronics enclosure example in there that will get you started. then take a look at how to setup time dependent studies to convert it from steady to time dependent.
