How to get a solution for a simple thermal Steady State Conduction problem

Hey all,

I am new to oof2, but I have run through the tutorials and tried working through some simple problems on my own.

When it comes to Solving the Heat transfer portion, I have Defined the following

Assigned pixels to groups Assigned Material properties to pixels Created mesh Refined mesh to desired density Defined Fields to Defined and active & Heat equation Defined Boundaries Left: Described flux=0 Right: Described flux=0 Top: Prescribed temp Bottom: prescribed temp

Now I cannot solve, I am not sure what to do next.

Any help would be wonderful!

    You probably need to say that the field is in-plane or that the plane heat flux equation is to be solved.
