Hello everyone,


I'm completelly new in Solidworks.


I want to simulate a temperature changes beacouse of heat source (1000 W calorifer) in garden gouse (wooden walls with one window). I already tried to setup boudary conditions. I specified window as a real wall with wall heat transfer coeficient = 6 W/m^2/K and I specified all wooden walls as ideal walls. When I simulate for 600s I get strange results. Temperature around heater is about 5000°C ??


I ask, how to setup bounday conditions properly to get ok results.

my model looks like this:


Thanks very much for answers!
