Heat Transfer Section

A Heat Transfer Section in RS2 is a user-defined line segment or polyline, through which the heat flow rate across the line segment(s) will be calculated during a thermal finite element analysis.

  • A Heat Transfer Section is created with the Add Heat Transfer Section option in the RS2 Model program.
  • Heat Transfer Sections can only be defined if the Thermal Method = Steady State FEA or Transient FEA in Project Settings.

After the analysis has been computed, if any Heat Transfer Sections were defined, the flow rate through the Heat Transfer Section(s) will be displayed in the RS2 Interpret program. An arrow indicates the direction of flow, and the value of the average flow rate is displayed, as shown below. If a heat transfer section is a polyline, RS2 will calculate the flow through each segment of the polyline.

Heat Transfer Sections must be defined in the RS2 Model program (i.e. prior to analysis), rather than Interpret (i.e. post analysis), because the heat flow rate calculation is carried out during the finite element analysis.

Display of Heat Transfer Sections

A Heat Transfer Section is displayed as a dark green line, with small circles marking the endpoints. An arrow and value indicate the direction and magnitude of flow through each segment.

In the RS2 Interpret program, the display of Heat Transfer Sections can be turned on or off under the thermal tab in the Display Options dialog or with the toolbar shortcut. You can also right-click on a Heat Transfer Section to toggle the visibility of the value.
