The stack effect simulation

Question asked by Ido Golan on Nov 24, 2013

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
