How good is flow simulation to model convection in static fluid? I am trying to simulate an experiment that I had done in the lab and am getting terrible results. I have a heat resistor giving out 40W and it is immersed in the fluid. And I am trying to model the rise in temperature of the fluid. Attached is a picture of my experiment. untitled.JPG
