Thermal contact and heat flux

A heating plate is heated up through a heat flux. Parts on top of this plate can exchange heat via contacts. This is shown in this example. A component is in direct contact and exchanges heat via heat conductivity. Another component is very close to the heat source and exchanges heat via a simplified heat convection and radiation formulation. Another component is located outside the contact range and does not exchange heat.
