Proof of Concept test for electric water heater

This animation shows a proof of concept geometry for an electrical water heater:

Two graphite electrodes are immersed in a water tank. Three physics are involved. First, the static current conduction equation is resolved. Then, Joule heating energy is calculated in the entire geometry and used as a body force for the heat equation. Finally, temperature calculated is introduced in the Navier-Stokes equations.
