I calculated the FLUX_ELGA, FLUX_ELNO from The command CALC_CHAMP, and Over the outside 2D area it will not calculate it, but on the outer layer 3D it does.

A heat flux has W/m2 units, does this change on the 3D mesh? Am I getting a W/m3 result because I am using a 3D mesh?

I did an integration afterwards with POST_ELEM INTEGRALE, over the 3D volume, the documentation is very small concerning what this command does. Is the result of this integral Watts? or W/m3?

Thanks for any information that you can provide.

Anybody? please help

]]>at the end I think I am integrating the Flux_Elno over the wall, to get total power, amount of energy that crosses the wall per unit of time.

Thanks in advance for any advice...
