    The stack effect simulation

    Ido Golan


      I want to design a wood stove.

      The physics behind a wood stove is that hot air is less dense and for that reason it raises up threw the chimney (the stack effect).


      I want the flow to start because of a heat source.

      How can I simulate this effect?


      I tried to put a heat source and I did "time dependent" and "gravity" but how should I define the inlets and outlets?

      Or is there any different approach?


      Any help will be appreciated


      Thanks Ido
