    Heat transfer rate across a surface?

    Jonathan Thompson

      In flow simulation, is it possible to specify a heat transfer rate across a surface, as opposed to a heat transfer coefficient?  The videos I've seen involve only a heat transfer coefficient but, in my intended application, I know the heat transfer rate but, want to know what the final fluid and solid surface temperatures will be.

       

      If context will help, I would need to study a heat sink with transistors affixed to one surface and, with forced convection on all others.

       

      Thanks.
